Excellent quality for the price. Good weight in hand. I was afraid the lead
would be easy to break but it is fine. (No pun intended). Nice pencil!

, January 7, 2013
This pencil is a bit of a mixed bag:
-Very comfortable to write with
-Very smooth writing
-Good lead advancement mechanism
-Not particularly durable. Mine was prone to jamming
-0.3mm lead breaks frequently if you're not careful
-Non-retracting tip is kind of fragile. I'm pretty sure mine got bent in my
backpack, which was responsible for the occasional lead jamming. Had to
disassemble clean the broken pieces out, and reassemble. Takes about 2-3 minutes
and happened every few days or approx 10hrs of writing
-The metal etched grip is good, but once your fingers get sweaty it gets tough
to keep a grip.
Overall it isn't bad, but you must transport it in a hard pencil case to avoid
damage, and it has some annoyances

I love the feel of this pencil in my hand: Its weight is perfect, its balance is
great and the knurling grip is comfortable and wide enough for my grip. The lid
advancing mechanism seems to be very reliable and the price is very attractive.

This just may be my favorite pencil. It is about the same thickness as the
Staedtler 925, but with the metal grip it's bottom heavy, giving the user better
control than with the 925. I also prefer the metal grip over the rubber grip of
the 925, as the rubber attracts a ton of lint. The lead advances just a fraction
of a mm at a time so breakage is held to a minimum. It also includes a clean out
rod, which many pencil manufacturers are beginning to omit. I would choose this
pencil over the others in its class, such as the Zebra Drafix and the Staedtler

This pencil is a gem. It is well designed and very well made. It's not only an
attractive pencil but with the balance shifted to the writing end due to the
nicely checkered metal grip and heavy metal lead sleeve it feels nice in the
hand and rights well. Lead breakage is held to a minimum due to it's quality
craftsmanship. The lead reservior is large enough to hold a couple tubes of lead
with room to spare. The lead indicator stays put by locking into place solidly.
The grip and lead sleeve are not integral but removing the grip makes removing
the lead sleeve easier. The plastic barrel and clutch are integral so the inner
tube is not removable.
Overall this pencil is a keeper. High quality at an affordable price. You can't
go wrong with this one.

This is a terrible drafting pencil. Obviously one may argue that this pencil
requires 0.3 led and that lead is likely to break. However I have tried many
different types of leads with this pencil and it just keeps breaking lead. It is
like throwing out money for both the led and the pencil. This is a Lead Pig and
I advise that people not purchase this. Some may also argue that I am pressing
to hard to over working it. I only use this pencil for 41 minutes a day just for
one class and it still seems to fail.
