This fun and soft grip just clips onto wooden pencil, making it easy to attach and detach. Just push the clip to open the grip. Ergonomic shape is great for children or for artists. Sturdy grip is capable of even handling pencils 2 cm short. Different grip colors available.
Simple, handy-dandy little item that I don't have occasion to use that often,
but it's small enough that it's no trouble to keep in a pen case. I've tried it
on different girth-size pencils & it works equally well on regular pencils or
odd ones like an American Jumbo. I usually prefer mechanical pencils but
sometimes they're not allowed (like on test answer sheets) or I want to use
colored pencils. I have small-to-avg.-sized hands (for a woman for myself) so
most writing tools are fine for me in size, but I have arthritis so like a
thicker girth & cushioned grip. Would also be good for larger hands or small
children. Bright blue is nice w/o being gawdy.
Don't get me wrong, I think that this could be very useful for a child to use
when they're learning how to write, but I'm really not fond of this grip.
I love the Tombow Olno Body Knock Mechanical Pencil, and I thought that I could
use this grip to turn any pencil into one of those--the grips look similar,
don't they? Unfortunately, this grip isn't made of the same material, and is
slippery. Not only is the material slippery, but this grip doesn't have a good
grip (not pun intended) on the pencil. This grip keeps sliding down forward, on
my pencils, which causes me to have to keep readjusting it.
I would encourage everyone to consider these critiques before buying one of
these, especially as a substitute for the Tombow Olno Body Knock Mechanical
This is definitely more of a grip than an extender, at least for my paws. Even
if it can accept fairly small stubs, I'm not sure if I could comfortably use the
If this were to be ignored, it is actually a rather nice grip. It holds solidly
onto the pencil and provides a bit more comfort than holding onto the barrel
directly. For those who are used to larger pens -- fountain pen users like
myself, as an example -- this can be useful if you plan on using a pencil for a
The grip itself has quite a lot of grip/tack which makes me worry a bit about
how long it will stay clean. But this same quality is a virtue as there is no
slippage while using the pencil. It also can handle quite a few sizes ranging
from typical #2 size to Tombow Mono, which normally can't be handled by
extenders, to even larger pencils. This flexibility alone is worth the small
cost to have it in anyone's kit. Having more than one isn't really needed as it
just slips over the pencil quickly and easily.
