This is a great tool for extending a pencil and/or making a pencil more comfortable, but the quality of the "claw" that extends when you push on the button feels cheap. It's made of aluminum, so the holder itself is lightweight, but the aluminum doesn't seem durable (who knows, I haven't had it for too long, so it could prove to be??) and the machining of the claw is rough with a lot of sharp edges. It also doesn't fully retract once the pencil is inserted. The rest of the holder looks good, and it feels good in the hand, but the claw mechanism doesn't impress me.

These Stad One-Push pencil...

These Stad One-Push pencil extenders/lengtheners/holders are awesome! I've been in search of the perfect ones for a couple years now ever since I started buying expensive pencils such as the Mitsubishi Hi-Uni and the California Republic Palomino pencils. I've tried about 4 or 5 different styles. These are by far my favorite! They are just the right weight, size, and texture - the whole body is really smooth aluminum (there's no rubber grip). The cap/button also has an eraser under it. The eraser diameter is the same as the Tombow One Twist Mini erasers, and you could in fact replace it with one.

They're so comfortable, I almost wish I could use them with my full sized pencils as well. They are super easy and quick to put the pencil in our out, which is a big plus since I sharpen pencils a lot. They grip the pencil really well and don't let the pencil move around once it sort of "locks" in (although sometimes you have to twist the pencil until the grip mechanism is all the way back like it is when there is no pencil in it.) I highly recommend these if you'd like to get a little more mileage out of your pencil stubs.

So far the best pencil extender yet. Light in weight and with a worthy grip section it excels in easy insertion and removal; especially when you want to know how much you have left of that precious pencil stub.

Very light, which may be good or bad depending on your preference. Comfortably sized for the average hand. (I personally wish it were larger, see below). The eraser is nice for those that are used to eraser tipped pencils. Casing and visible bits are metal, as far as I can tell, but feels a little flimsy none the less. I suspect some interior bits are plastic.
Fits all the standard artist pencils I've tried as well as your run of the mill No. 2. A conte crayon was also fine, so it may fit some smaller sized compressed charcoals as well. I was hoping it would hold a wood-less type pencil but I found all the ones I had on hand were too large.
I wish it was larger in diameter and the clutch grip was further adjustable to accommodate larger pencils and chalks, but it did not claim to be anything other than a pencil holder. All in all it's good for the price.

Nice pencil holder. sturdy with a nice weight to it. I purchased the thing without looking at the price. I think it's a bit expensive but I'm still satisfied with the order. The star rating is strictly based on the product nothing to do with the price.

Very excited about this holder! It's very comfortable to hold and seems to suit all of my pencils well.
To echo previous reviews, the claws are indeed a bit fragile - I wouldn't recommend sharpening your pencils while they're still in the holder. The eraser also popped out the first time I undid the lid, but that's probably normal.
