DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers (1)
Spend a few minutes with the Rotring 600 and you'll understand why it has been so frequently requested at JetPens. This highly sought after product has a weight and feel that represents what a professional drafting pencil should be to many people. It has an all metal brass body, traditional knurled grip, fixed 4 mm sleeve, lead grade indicator (with knurled metal casing) and clip. It has a very technical look and will appeal to engineers for its solid construction and lead advancement mechanism. The guide pipe gives an excellent view of the lead. The pencil has an 8 mm diameter grip and 9 mm hexagonal body shape. The subtle change in body shape links this modern drafting pencil with its wooden pencil ancestors. The top cap holds an eraser and also features the iconic Rotring red circle.

The Rotring 0.35 mm is equivalent to the standard 0.3 mm we are accustomed to and accepts 0.3 mm lead. The 0.35 is a German distinction that recognizes that the 0.3 mm pencil lead diameter is actually closer to 0.35 mm.

The Rotring 600, although narrower and slightly less comfortable than the Staedtler 925-25, is my favorite due to its solid construction. The Rotring 600 can feel unbalanced if I grab it too close to the tip. Nevertheless, its absolute precision elegantly accompanies its distinctive, clinical appearance. If I could only choose one pencil, it would be this one.

This is pencil is BEAST. This silver finished Rotring is much smoother than it's matte black counterpart. The pencil is heavy yet balanced, and the grip gives maximum control (although it is a bit smaller than I can stand to use for more than a couple hours). Otherwise, this is a beautiful pencil that looks like a dentist tool.

As an avid drafting pencil enthusiast with a wide collection of pencils, I have to say this is one of my favorites. It has a very nice weight to it with good balance. Solid construction and the silver metal looks very sleek and clean cut. I would recommend this to anyone who appreciates quality stationary equipment.

A very good pencil, excellent build, nice design. However I still like my rapid pro a little better for both the weight and the grip.

I have both the black and silver versions of this pencil. I use them for drawing and writing. I like the weight of the pencil but many of the people who ask to see it find it too heavy. Even though it is heavy it is balanced and you get used to the weight. Although I love using the thin lead I find that it breaks often even when you don’t press too hard. I still use them but sometimes the lead doesn’t come out of the pencil no matter how many times I click the top. I haven’t dropped or handled roughly and I don’t know why this happens. These are my go to pencils I use them everyday and I love them. You can get such thin lines and not only do they work well they look good. The grip looks a bit like it won’t feel good but I’ve drawn for hours straight with out it slipping or hurting my fingers. Also jet pen as all the things you need to refill or fix it (if the tip breaks or you run out of lead or eraser) I've read in the comments that some people are worried about the thin tip and it doesn't retract like the later versions but if that were happen you can always replace it. It is a tad expensive but i've had mine for more than a year and they're hanging in. I do tend to use the silver body more that's why the review is on it.
