This pencil is fantastic....

This pencil is fantastic. I've had it for a while and it never disappoints. It
writes like a dream and is super swanky looking.
In my hand, the pencil is just heavy enough to feel solid without being
cumbersome and it's nicely balanced in the center to make writing easy. The
knurled grip is made of metal but it's textured in a way that doesn't destroy my
skin. A firm grip is easy to maintain. It's also the perfect diameter, for my
hand at least. It's slightly thicker than the 600 and 800 series, but that extra
thickness is comfortable.
Writing is a very pleasant experience. Moving the pencil around is easy, despite
the weight of the pencil. No part of the pencil blocks the view of what I'm
writing. The click of the pencil is a bit lacking, but there is definitely an
audible click and a faint vibration in the pencil when clicking. So, it's at
least a better click than the atrocious 800 series but not as good as the 600
series. The retractable tip extends a good distance and vanishes completely when
If I had to complain about something, it would be the clip. It isn't fastened
tightly enough to stop it from rotating around the pencil as I write. Also, the
chrome is a magnet for finger prints and smudges. Those are only minor
If you're looking for a well crafted pencil that can last you a lifetime, buy
this one. It's well worth it.
