The best 2mm holder for...
Verified Purchase
The best 2mm holder for the money; Only thing I would change is have the full pencil in hexagonal shape plastic without abrasive metal grip, place a lead sharpener in the cap and you have a beauty. Perfect color with gold letter. I have the 0.5mm with gold letter from the late 80's (it's a beauty) and is fully plastic with no annoying metal grip.

Hopefully Uni will make this 2mm pencil in full plastic one day as described above, same burgundy/brown color with a 0.5mm pencil to have a nice matching set.

This 2mm clutch pencil...
Verified Purchase
This 2mm clutch pencil is good for writing, drafting or sketching. It is made mainly out of plastic (the cap, barrel and inner chamber). The pocket clip is thin but is useable. Each pencil has it's own grade marked, so if you want to use various grades of lead you'll need a few of these pencils in their designations. I kind of wished it had a rotating grade indicator but with some of the lower costing pencils they aren't very well implemented. The clutch is a 3 prong which I feel is not as good as with a four prong like in the Koh-i-noor or Faber Castell pencils, but the lead is held quite firmly. I saw jaw markings on the lead after a few uses.

Verified Purchase
Having continued to use this leadholder for longer drawing sessions, I'd recommend covering the rather abrasive knurled metal finger grip section with a plastic pencil grip or tennis wrap to avoid sore fingers. Especially if you tend to grip your pencils tightly, that knurled grip can really leave your fingers hurting the following day. Posted a close up picture of my grip solutions on my Dec 11th blog entry http://robotninjamonsters.blogspot.com/

Verified Purchase
Light and comfortable to use. Quality seems higher than the average leadholders currently sold in office supplies stores (which no longer seem to be made in Germany). The gold type on the maroon barrel and brown push-button looks quite nice and clearly indicate the hardness for a smooth workflow. It would have been nice if it had a built-in sharpener, but a good value nonetheless.
