This mechanical pencil...
Verified Purchase
This mechanical pencil is ridiculously amazing! I love writing with this pencil more so than the 10+ others I bought from this site. It just doesn't feel the same when my letters turn out ugly or the paper rips due to the sharp lead. But I fear no more! This pencil makes me love writing and IT IS PERFECT for writing 100s of Chinese characters! I highly recommend buying 2-3 of various colors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All I can say is wow....
Verified Purchase
All I can say is wow. I heard about this pencil on the Minimal Mac podcast, and I decided to give it a try since I have an issue with chiseling lead, even on 0.5 mm lead. The mechanism is very nice; it does exactly what it's intended to do. It's not really that much of a difference in reality, but it just makes writing that much smoother and more even. It won't work miracles, but the benefit is really in the details.

The main feature of this...
Verified Purchase
The main feature of this pencil is the auto-sharpening. But it seemed to have a mechanical problem on light use, and I handled it gently.

This design is just so...
Verified Purchase
This design is just so innovative! Who knew that they could design the lead to rotate on its own? I love this pencil. I would like to see it in a 0.7mm as well, but I don't see that available. The eraser is also a bit small for my preference, but that's just me.

BEST EVER!! I have...
I have the green and orange ones and they're absolutely fabulous. I've been using them a whole year and they still work, top-notch. These will be the mechanical pencils I'll be buying from now and on.

For about the same price...
For about the same price as a "normal" mechanical pencil, here's one that just works better.
I like the lead rotation, even though I tend to hold the pencil at a very high angle, so the effect is less noticeable. The bigger benefit to me is the slight cushioning of the lead from the rotation mechanism. I've had no breakage of the .5mm lead, and I suspect I could use a .3mm without a problem as well.

The design is pretty good, though I wish the clip was removable.

The only drawback I can see is that the lead only rotates when the lead contacts the paper. Thus, if you use cursive, you'll get 1 or 2 movements per word, while printing would have 1 to 4 per letter.
