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. 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.

This pencil does exactly what it says it does. You will see the mechanism rotate when you push the tip down and when you lift the pencil back up. I really love how the grip lets you see how it works. I saw that other customers don't think this pencil is as good for those who write in cursive; I can say that I haven't noticed that much of a difference. It is true that you will see more rotations if you write in print or write Chinese/Japanese characters, but my cursive looks clean and neat as well. I'm not sure if being left-handed makes a huge difference, but you will see rotations and crisper letters no matter how you write. I think this is a clever pencil and I love writing with it. It doesn't take much force at all to push the tip down enough to make it rotate; after you write for a while you stop noticing the "pushing" sensation. I gave it four stars because it's not comfortable enough for me to write frantic notes during long lecture hours. My hand gets sweaty and cramps up when I have to write that long, and I had to switch to another pencil because this one got too slippery to hold on to. I love that the "grip" is a translucent plastic that lets you see inside, but I just can't write with it for long because there's nothing to keep sweaty/crampy fingers from slipping. Despite my criticisms of the grip, I think it is a wonderfully crafted, unique and quality pencil. Because of that I eventually want to spend the extra to try the Uni Alpha Gel Kuru Toga, which seems to be more ergonomic for my taste. Overall I recommend this pencil, I still use it but not as often as I use my all-time favorite: the Pilot Dr. Grip Play Border Shaker pencil.

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 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.

this is my new favorite pencil =). it's great for writing and i love it. the rotation doesn't work as well if you prefer to write in cursive though.
