This was the first lead holder pencil i ever bought and i gotta say it's really
amazing! The design is by far, the best i've seen, esp. for a metal body. Some 2
mm refill leads however, are too long making it difficult. So you would have to
chop off a piece. I would recommend using the preferred lead refills. Overall,
for my first lead holder pencil, i really like it.

- Love this pencil!...

- Love this pencil! :D
- ALL Metal
- Click to extend the lead
- I bought the TK 9400 Faber Castell while i was in London and i actually prefer
the look of it to this Staedtler pencil. (The Faber Castell was also ~8 dollars
cheaper -cost 5 pounds in London-)
- The Faber Castell simply lets the lead slide out, yet at times, i prefer that
because i can regulate the length of the lead in the blink of an eye w/o taking
time to click away to extend the lead of this pencil. Still, i keep both lead
holders in my main pencil case just for fun :]

I have owned many 2mm lead holders,and this by far is a winner with solid metal
construction,a lead degree indicator,pocket clip, and the "knock" method of
advancing the lead. Keep the button pressed down and the lead can easily be
manually adjusted like the standard clutch models. The lack of a built in
pointer is not much of a deal breaker. Convenient as they are,some lead shavings
get trapped and leak out. I would leave that up to a dedicated lead pointer or
keep around a cheaper holder with a pointer. All in all it is one of the better
lead holders around.

I have this pencil and it is fabulous. Although I don't think it should be a
lead holder, I think it should be just a regular Drafting Pencil to me. Anyways,
LOVE DIS PENCIL!!!!!!!! Anyone who sees this pencil buy it!
P.S. One lead stick should last you about 6 months to a year, If you don't push
it down too hard and don't use it every single day.

I was very excited to finally receive this pencil as I've been using Staedtler
leadholders for years, but it turned out to be a terrible disappointment. After
a couple of day's use, the pencil stopped advancing lead, and is now useless.
While it worked, it was wonderful, but there seem to be some quality control
