I really liked the idea of a pencil holder, I'm a person who used to tape wrapped up dowel to the end of small pencils to keep using them. But naturally it's troublesome.
Most art stores I went to for a holder sold individual holders that were uggly and fussy, or nice ones in huge sets of colored pencils, which I have pleanty of,

The Stad One-push pencil holder is the nicest looking holder and definitly the most confortable. It's a nice width, and a nice cool alluminum, which I'm used to thanks to pens. And it doesn't weigh your hand down to use. I absolutely love it!

The Stad pencil Holder...
May 7, 2012
The Stad pencil Holder also makes for a wicked, slick Eraser stick when using the Staedtler 528 55 Mars® refill plastic erasers . I searched long and hard for a good-looking quality metal eraser stick to replace my cheapy plastic versions and bought one of these in hopes it would work. Well it far exceeded my expectations as it holds snugly and tightly the Staedtler refill eraser while the jaws stay in it's resting retracted position as you see in the picture without a pencil in it. It looks absolutely great and now my search for a beautful Stick eraser is finally over. The kicker is these holders are pretty economical too.

These extenders are fantastic!...

These extenders are fantastic! Price wise they're only a little bit more than the more conventional extenders that utilize a thin metal ring. However, those of us who use colored pencils down to the nub realize we want to get our money's worth out of them. The other holders quit being effective at about 2 inches left of pencil. I am using a pencil that's barely 3/4's of an inch with this holder! It holds on tight until there's nothing left to hold onto.

Claw came off. Pros: ...

Claw came off.

sleek design
good grip, semi-glossy finish is nice to hold and to look at
The claws have sharp edges and can scratch the paint of a pencil.
The claws are fragile.

This is a good extender, very comfortable to use. The clutch mechanism is a good design, no awkward clip getting in the way like the Faber-Castell perfect pencil (basically a cap), nor is there a ring that carves into fingers like the Koh-I-Noor No 1098. However the claws can really be made to a higher quality. The first time I used this extender I pushed the claws slightly outward to avoid scratching my pencil, very little force was applied but two claws yielded and after only a few uses one claw just came off. It still works, for now, but it won't be long before the next claw come off and I doubt with one third of the claws missing it can still hold on to pencil tight enough.

It's a well priced, ergonomically comfortable product.
There's an erase at the tip under the removable cap.

Gives new life to old, nubby, worn down favourite pencils.
Not the outer material is not rubber, but a smooth and pleasing painted metal finish.

5 on 5. The best pencil holder on this site, easily! :)

One of the best pencil extenders out there. Will pay for itself after a box of premium pencils.

I love these. I use the black one for lead pencils and the silver for color.

This is the best pencil holder I've used - by a wide margin. The push-button makes inserting and adjusting the pencil's extension length trivially easy. It takes pencils with thicker enamel coatings (most artist's pencils) without damaging them. I'm sure the jaws cause some small amount of wear on the pencil's paintjob, but I haven't really noticed any.

The eraser hidden under the end cap has turned out to be surprisingly handy. It's certainly not as nice as a kneaded eraser, which I try to have on hand, but it's wonderful to have it as backup.

Despite being metal, the aluminum is very lightweight and I don't find the holder to put the pencil out of balance. The jaws are low enough in profile that gripping the holder around the jaw area, while not ideal, is not a painful experience. In all, it's very comfortable, especially compared to the holders which use metal rings to tighten the grip. It's way more comfortable than those to hold.

Because of the easy push-button jaw release, it would make an excellent point protector as well as holder - just reverse the pencil and you're set!

Another nice feature is that with the eraser and end cap removed, the holder becomes completely hollow for its entire length, allowing you to use it with any length pencil, even brand new ones, if you wish.

In all, I can't say enough good things about it. For a while, I considered buying another one so that I can use several short pencils at the same time - but it's actually so easy to swap pencils in this holder, that really becomes an unnecessary convenience.

As for durability, only time will tell. I've used up the last two inches of a 2B Staedtler Mars Lumograph at my desk with no problems, but I've not tried something more abusive like pocket carry.

Works great, though maybe it could use a better grip. I’m using it right now on my California pencil and it works charmingly. The teeth have a nice grip, and now I’m able to use my pencils comfortably to the very end.

It’s a little expensive for what I consider quality, as it’s pretty light and almost flimsy, but the grip does get the job done. I just wish there were some rubber grips on it.

One-push pencil holder.
Absolutely does what it says on the package!
The finish isn't perfect thogh and the eraser is of hardly any use at all, but other than that, this is a product hard to beat on price!

The grip lock mechanism seems to hold firm and without damaging the pencils exceedingly, some scratches do occur though.

I only regret not getting a pencil holder with a rubber grip.
