This pencil surprised me in it's build quality and performance. It's very light,
the metal grip must be aluminum or something similar. The lead selector spins
with a "snap" so it stays in place. I have other pencils that were much more
expensive than this that the selector window just freewheels around the shaft
and constantly changes itself *UGGHH*.
This pencil is definately worth the money. You won't be disappointed.

This is an excellent pencil with good quality and a good buy. However, the only
parts of the pencil that are metal are the grip and the tip, but since the cost
of this pencil is only $7.50, this pencil is good enough for me.

I would consider this to be a mid-line pencil. Better than or equal to what you
could get at a local school supply store, but not up to the level of quality of
other items Jetpens offers. The best feature of this pencil is the grip; it is
good quality metal, and while the grip is a bit on the rough side it does the
The lead advance mechanism is fairly average, not poorly constructed by any
means but it feels a bit on the light side, but the same can be said for the
entire pencil. My biggest complaint is the plastic shaft. I find when I write
with it, it has a disconcerting tendency to flex when pressed down. Not a huge
deal when sketching, but when writing text or numbers it took a bit to get used
to. I use this as a 'field pencil' when I am in a situation where I don't want
my nicer equipment nicked or dirtied.
Conclusion: It is an OK pencil but if you are visiting this site, you probably
want something with a bit more quality put into it.

I bought a set (.3mm .4mm .5mm .7mm .9 mm)of theses pencils for school
(Architecture student) and I never had to buy anymore pencils , until some of
them got stolen. The entire tip is made out of metal so is the grip, and the
inside mechanism as well. The body is made out of rigid and non flexible
plastic. In the middle there is a rotatable lead indicator, the eraser is cover
with a metal cap , and has a simple metal mechanism that makes it easy to swap
the eraser when its done.
It fells good in the hand , it's heavier then a regular mechanical pencil , but
not too heavy in general use, and the diamond grip make's it impossible to
The only thing i did not like about it is that the eraser was small , and if use
frequently you would have to replace it as often.
One of the best pencil set I ever bought .
