This pencil is the winner of the 2008 Kids Design Award in Japan. Though it is shaped in the form of a traditional wooden pencil, it is actually a mechanical pencil and is designed so that lead automatically extends for you when worn down. You can continue writing without the need to extend more lead! So convenient, you'll love it. Each pencil features an eraser on top (non-replaceable) and is available in different body colors. Pencil is refillable with lead by detaching the cartridge from the eraser top and loading more pencil lead from the front.

It's a good basic, fun pencil that looks like a wood pencil. For the price, it's the perfect thing to get to bump you into free shipping.

To summarize the long "how to load it" post before mine:
1. unscrew the back.
2. Put a lead into the chamber.
3. Screw the back on. This'll push the lead into the tip.
4. Write or just press on some paper until the lead gets down there.

Good pen. Mucho recommended, especially to get the free ship. Not my main pencil though. :D

I love these pencils!...
Verified Purchase
I love these pencils! We picked them up for our son, who likes them and uses them in elementary school. The colors are great, and they really look like a wooden pencil even up close. Loading has been covered in other comments. I would just add that if the lead needs to be advanced just a little, all you have to do is push the black sleeve (that looks like the lead) toward the pencil body a little bit and release. The lead will advance a little or a lot, depending on how far you push back the sleeve. Once you do that, it will automatically advance on its own while you write, so this isn't something that you need to do often.

i like how his pencil...
Verified Purchase
i like how his pencil writes and how lightweight it is but its a real pain in the ass to refill with lead. i can write quickly and let the lead go way down before i need to tap the tip to get more out or whatever. i usually cant do that with other pencils because the metal will scratch the paper and thats bad. overall, a cool pencil that you can write and drag the graphite less tip across and not tear your paper with.

Putting Lead by the Front...
Verified Purchase
Putting Lead by the Front is NOT Possible.

I just bought one and took me a few minutes to figure it out. I wanted to use blue lead instead of graphite so I bought some 0.7 Blue Eno lead from Pilot also sold in Jet Pens. I will use it for some preliminary draws before I ink or draw on top of. My review is to facilitate people who want to change the leads. It's not as easy as regular mechanical pencils, but it's not too bad. First you have to pull out the lead from the from by pushing back on the grey plastic tip that is suppose to look like the tip of a pencil. The you can pull the lead, but nice and slowly always retracting from the place it's coming out and not simply pulling from the end out (that will snap the lead). The you twist off the eraser holder (not eraser) until you pull out the container that is filled with extra lead (2). I removed them and the one the pencil came with and stored it for another mechanical pencil later. I grabbed the blue leads and unlike how it states you put by the front it's not possible. You can only add 1 lead through the inside. You have to let it slide in the hole (you can see it) and then you basically begin to draw on a scrap piece of paper until it comes out. If you do this for less than a minute it will come out. Once it starts drawing you can simply pull the lead out and pushing the pencil tip in a little to desired length and you are set.
