I think I'd actually give this a 4.5. Not for any real reason though. I don't
know why I don't absolutely adore this pencil the way others do. Don't get me
wrong, I really, really like it. It's just not my go-to the way I expected it to
I haven't tried the leads which came with this as I purchased the pencil
specifically for using with my sketchbook. Instead, I have some Pilot non-photo
blue lead in it. I like the 0.7 mm size for loose work. It's great for taking
notes in the margins too. The eraser is a bit small for artwork, but works very
well and is perfect for correcting notes in class.
It really does keep a sharp point using the rotating mechanism. I was a little
skeptical and pleasantly surprised to find it did just this. The pencil feels
light in hand and the grip section fits nicely. I find I don't get fatigued as
much as I do with a standard pencil as I'm not constantly rotating my grip.
Which is excellent as I'm always writing and sketching ideas out.
Overall, this is a great pencil and one well worth keeping in my toolkit.
