, May 13, 2012
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

Having a almost perfect RR500 in my arsenal, I wanted to check out how well the
legendary RR600 fares.
They always say, 'Don't write your heroes, you will be disappointed'. This is
NOT the case with the RR600. It's even better than I have ever dreamed. A very
smooth silver finish. And holding it really is like holding a solid black of
hexagonal metal. It is beautiful to behold and the minimalism of the design (the
word 'Rotring' only appearing on the removable clip) really does appeal to me.
The writing experience is smooth, very smooth. There really are too much 'just
rights' on this product that one cannot hate the RR600. It is indeed very
precise and solidly built.
The knurled grip is just right. Not too smooth, not too rough. The only problem
is that this HAS to stay home. I've heard too many stories about people who
ruined their 600 by dropping it. But as long as one takes care of it, the
quality of this gem will outlive me.

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.

Just got a new Rotring 600 for Father's Day! I'm so excited to finally have one,
but so scared to use it at the same time! Everything about the pencil is
awesome; it's just that sleeve that is oh so fragile that has me watching every
move with this pencil.
The weight is a little more than I'm used to with my other plastic barreled
pencils, but I'm getting used to it. I absolutely love the metal knurled grip.
The pencil is a little thinner than I thought it would be which is a bonus,
because I love thin barreled pencils!
All in all this pencil takes the cake. Precision engineering and design, with a
It's a shame that all the good quality pencils are made and sold in other
countries; and all the sloppy plastic crap is sold here in the U.S. I'm so glad
Jetpens is there to bridge that gap for us American pen/pencil fanatics.
Keep up the good work JetPens!
