The best 2mm lead holder... EVER!!

I love this lead holder. It is heaver than the Staedtler 925-35 -- which I like. It is mechanically excellent, and has never failed to function. The lead sharpener in the cap works, but I prefer to use a dedicated sharpener -- less messy. The grip is standard Rotring.

This is the best lead holder I have ever found (I just bought 3 more just in case they ever stop making them)...

By far the best 2mm lead holder I have ever owned! This thing is fantastic. Good weight. Good balance. Never jams. Lead never slips. Only negative is no little ring to remind you what kind of lead you loaded into it. Closely matched with the 0.5mm version so you can switch back and fourth without needing to adjust your grip. I keep three of these and one of the 0.5mm ones in my drawing kit. Very highly recommended.

I normally use 0.4 to 0.9 Pentel Graphgear 1000s and Staedtler Mars Technico leadholders but decided to try Rotring as I heard it was a high-quality writing instrument. I do design and drawing so investing in good pencils is important to me. The weight of this pencil definitely wasn't too heavy and I would say it was solid and well-balanced. It certainly is very nice to look at without being too flashy. The knurling is noticeable but fine so it won't scratch your fingers like some brands will do. They take the UNI lead refills but you have to remove the plastic on them first. You can also use the Uni lead sharpener for this one. The one HB Rotring lead it came with was very nice though (dark and slightly dry feeling/ not greasy) and am sorry I didn't order any Rotring lead to go with it. This is my first Rotring but it makes me curious about their other models now. Only wish it had a lead indicator to make it perfect.

I love this, it's wonderful, it feels fantastic and it's perfect with one problem. It doesn't fit in the Staedtler lead pointer. I tried a million different ways, all to the breaking of leads. Does anyone know if there is a lead pointer that will fit it? Please tell me if you do. If there is a lead pointer that it fits, then it's beyond perfect and you shouldn't even hesitate to get one!
