Tombow's Olno Swift mechanical pencil pulls off a neat trick. A clue is in the name "Olno," which is derived from "oruno," the Japanese word for "bend." Lead is advanced by bending the body, due to the pencil's unique "body knock" mechanism. While in writing position, simply move your thumb up to the three grooves on the rubber grip and press firmly to bend the pencil. With this innovative mechanism, you do not need to completely shift your hand position to extend more lead while writing. The pencil also includes the conventional mechanism, allowing you to advance lead by clicking the pencil top.

The rubber grip covers the whole bottom part of the pencil, so that writing and body knock clicking are comfortable. The glossy metallic upper part and metal clip give the pencil its composed style. The top has a refillable capped eraser, and the tip has a 4 mm guide pipe, which is ideal for drafting and provides stability. Lead is inserted by unscrewing the body just above the rubber grip.

This Light Silver body is a limited edition color.

Wow! So I just got this today in the mail and it was soooo amazing! I can't put it down! It's super comfortable to use and I actually really like the "body knock" thing. I'm a pretty big pencil buyer from here so on top of the fairly cheap price, I think it's overall just an awesome pencil. I haven't had any problems with it and the lead hasn't broken on me. The grip on it is ridiculously comfortable and I just like the weight of the pencil--not too heavy but just right. Helps for long nights of drawing! Hope you guys will enjoy it too!

  Alright, I'm going to..., December 17, 2013

Alright, I'm going to be writing a review not specifically about this majestic, heavenly pencil, but a comparison between it and its predecessor, the "regular" Tombow Olno. This review is written exclusively to help the reader to decide between the 5 dollar Olno, or spend an extra 5 bucks and get the Olno Swift.

First thing I noticed when I got the Swift was that the grip seemed to be larger and more pliable than the Olno. It looked amazing, and when I took it out of my pencil pouch the day after it arrived, every eye in the room seemed to be drawn to the writing utensil that I held. I simply love it.

SIMILARITIES: Both Olnos have the incredibly unique way of advancing lead, by "simply bending the pencil." If you haven't read the description of this pencil yet, feel free to check it out above this post, to the right of the picture. Of course, you have already checked it. Both Olnos feature undeniably big grips, which pretty much makes up half of the pencil itself.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TWO: Alright, this is where the similarities end and significant upgrades happen. When checking out the material the Swift is made of, the entire top of the pencil is solid metal, (maybe also the clip?)and simply FEELS so much STURDIER; as opposed to the all-plastic Olno. This also makes it very much top-heavy, if you're into that. Eraser is also the same, but if you are a perfectionist like me, you never use any eraser on a mechanical pencil, no matter how dire the situation is. A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE is that the metal sleeve is long for a mechanical pencil, it is at least 4 mm, and makes the Swift feel much like a DRAFTING PENCIL.

Writing this post, I realized that I am extremely biased, and yes, I will try to convince you to buy this pencil over it's predecessor. Everything about this pencil is perfection, from sleeve to eraser. However, if you're still on that fine line between a 5 dollar pencil and it's SIGNIFICANTLY UPGRADED BIONICALLY ENHANCED evolution for a mere sum of 5 measly dollars, I have one thing to say to you. If you really love stationary, and spend hours of your day browsing though a wonderful website called Jetpens.com, 5 dollars isn't much to you. With no more money than your daily Latte drink, you can me a proud owner of this wonderful pencil. With this, I leave you to your decision.

Much Love.

Just like the cheapie version, this thing is amazing. It has the added heft and the attached clip is nice so the thing wont roll away like the cheaper version. But both are so worth the money and the natural flex click is just the best design in the world.
