Not terrible I guess, but not nearly as nice as Pentel's graph-gear 1000, which
costs the same and is also retractable. The cheap plasticy feel ( the upper
barrel is plastic if you couldn't tell) doesn't really detract from the
usability, but if chintzy doesn't bother you why spend so much on one pencil? A
few minor cons: the taper to the point is a little steep for my taste, and the
eraser is TINY, like even smaller than pentel's
be-careful-you-don't-accidentally-inhale-it erasers. Also, when the tip's
retracted the upper barrel slides around loosely, which is kind of annoying.
Seriously, just get the pentel pencil, it's universally better.
