Enjoy the beauty of Finnish design with this latest "piirto" line from Zebra. The “arbez" collection from Zebra is the result of a yearly design contest held by Zebra for young product designers all over the world. The first "arbez" product is a lightweight line called “piirto” created by a Finnish designer. The slim and simple form in this plastic body pencil is inspired by an ice pick, and features a top knock button to extend pencil lead. Different body color version available, as well as a ballpoint pen version.

Fun notes:
• Did you notice that "Arbez" is "Zebra" spelled backwards?
• Check out Eo, a British-designed line of Arbez pens.

Don't expect much here....

Don't expect much here. A basic - we'll call it "economical" pencil is all you'll get. There is no clip nor an eraser, just a orange cap. The advance mechanism pushes out way too much lead per click and so you waste a lot of lead.

There is a plus however, the triangle barrel is easy and comfortable to hold.

A good candidate to pass the $25 free shipping barrier nonetheless.

light weight and streamlined. i would like to use this more often except the metal tip that the lead comes out of seems as if its a .7 allowance for a .5 lead so there is a lot of wiggle and almost 100% of the time lead breakage. as one of the other reviews stated its a good shipping limit barrier breaker. i have found one good use for it and it was to teach me to write/draw with extra light pressure. which has its pros and cons.

the lead won't even push out. I have tried using several .5 mm leads on it and it just won't extend the lead. I have spent hours clicking the orange cap, but no luck. this is a cheap mechanical pencil, but I wasn't expecting it to be so cheap to the point it won't even work properly. I am very upset. It does look nice though, too bad I can't even use it!

i think i liked this pencil more than others. it is very lightweight which is nice after writing notes after using a heavy ass drafting pencil all day. this actually makes me change my grip on the pencil, which is nice.i grip it at the thickest part so writing becomes a little easier on my hand, at least for me. like others said, there is no eraser or clip. this pencil would be screwed if i lost the orange thing. the leads would just come out
