This is a great pencil. I have it in .35mm (like public, mine is old). Will be getting the silver body.

Oh wow, I have one of these that's about 20 years old, I didn't know they were still made. Superb pencil. I still use mine. It attracts attention, at least from engineers -- a coworker even offered to buy it from me. Then he threatened to steal it. ;)

Weight is good, durability (and lifetime) is mostly excellent. Keep in mind the tip at the end is exposed so, while 95% of the pencil is absolutely bomb-proof, that last 5% is vulnerable to bending. For this reason my pencil sees more use at home than on the road.

I got this as a gift and it is the best mechanical pencil I have used. The aesthetics of the pencil is the first thing you notice, but the weight and balance are what really make it a pleasure to use. I have had people use it and comment on how nice it feels to write with. I never have an issue with the lead jamming or breaking for that matter. You can't go wrong with this purchase. I do wish the tip would retract but its never been an issue sine I don't tend to carry it in my pocket.

I love this mech. pencil. This pencil is very heavy, which is really nice. After you get used to the weight, you can notice how high quality this mech. pencil is. And you also notice how low quality plastic mech. pencil are. The only problem with this mech. pencil is that the metal grip may hurt your hand if you hold it too tight. But other than that, I love this mech. pencil!

One complaint. The finish on the body is not pleasant. It feels like a quality pencil, one I'll be sure not to lose, but it isn't fun to sketch with due to the gritty texture of the body. I find myself wanting to switch to my mostly-plastic Alvin pencil after a few minutes of using this.

It is super smooth and easy to write with. I especially love the black body, because it's smooth and has a lovely grip (hexagon). It's heavier than normal pencils, which is another plus for me.

After using my Uni Kura Toga Roulette for about 2 years, I decided it was time to get a new pencil to spice up my college work as an Engineering student. Looking around, I've seen on the internet that the Rotring 600 pencil was the one that every avid pencil collector should have in their collection.

At a somewhat pricey $33, I decided to take the leap and see what all the hype was about
The first day I got the pencil, I instantly fell in love with it. From the knurling to the weight of the pencil, its a great pencil for writing, drawing, and drafting.

I say the only gripe I have is that it is a pricey pencil, so if you aren't too keen of taking care of your writing instruments, this kind of investment for a pencil may seem absurd.

But all in all, if you're looking for a good, well balanced, amazing piece of writing engineering, look no further and get the Rotring 600

I used the cheaper plastic rotring versions of this pencil in engineering school. I went to University of TN and our bookstore had huge rotring inventories. I always envied these more expensive writing instruments but made do with the entry line ones I could afford at the time. Fast forward 13 years later, whew, I finally got the 600 and couldn't be more pleased. It is a joy to write, jot, look at, and draw with. It is so well balanced and smooth. I have used a number of drafting pencils through the years, I even own a Pilot H1005 VP (no it isn't for sale), and this pencil eclipses all. It truly is worth the 30 bucks to get this one. I love the solid black. I may get the silver 600 in the 0.35mm now haha!
I just bought this pencil...
October 20, 2014
I just bought this pencil from a local art store and at first I was a bit nervous buying a 33$ pencil just to accidentally drop it and have to buy a new tip or worse loose it. This nervousness was soon lost after actually holding it and feeling it and I immediately bought it.

So far its the best pencil i have ever had, second to this would have to have been my pentel sharp kenny but I lost that with my pencil case a while ago. Anyway its great the feel is amazing compared to any other pencil the glide is very good and the weight helps. If you were to be using it as an everyday pencil I would be a bit hesitant because it is fragile, not pocket friendly and is a bit expensive to replace.

Overall this pencil is great and definitely worth the price.
