The good : this pen is definitely special. The craftmanship is exceptional, is very heavy and it makes for a fine toy - for example, you can spin the "cap" and the thin air layer acts as lubricant, can make a "pop" sound with it, or you can even use it as a weapon in more than one way !

The bad : the pen is so heavy, so it is fairly easy to damage the fine point. Then, being perfectly cylindrical it rolls easily - this can be corrected by adding a small bump at the top of the cylinder. Finally, the low air pressure in the container might mess up the gel ink continuity, meaning that there's an impression of running out of ink after you start writing.

Overall, the good parts definitely compensate the bad ones, and the pen should be used as intended - meaning as a toy that writes rather than a pen. A line to cw&T : make it of gold ( spend 10k) and sell it for 100k :)

Exceptional ! It gets everything done right - the weight, the quality, the design. Is not as modern looking as graphgear however the mechanism is excellent. Totally awesome; btw this pen is quite old, I had one more than 10 years ago !!

A looong time ago when Amazon was just starting I had only three good pencils. This was one of them and I found it in nyc at Art brown. I loved it, and although now there are lots of pencils more fun it's hard not to appreciate the quality and design of this pencil. ( my other pencils were R600 and pentel kerry ).

It's a good pencil -solid build, excellent finish - however I just didn't fall in love with it and in the end I didn't use it that much. If you are into complications I'd recommend skipping this one.

Good pencil - feels heavy on the tip which I like and the concept is interesting.

Rotring 600 Drafting Pencil - 0.5 mm - Black Body - SANFORD 1852309

Easily the best. These pencils are not cheap however they are really solid. I bought one about 12 yrs ago and I still have it although I dropped it so many times and meanwhile the clip broke. Can someone find comparable pencils cheaper ? Yes, but not by much ( platinum from Japan is also made of metal ). Compared with the R800 I think that is a much better value.
Kaweco Special AL Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Black Body - KAWECO 10000181

Very high quality material - the barrel has a special polish that gives it a smooth texture. The pencil feels quite light actually - although well balanced. On the downside - there's no clip and also the eraser doesn't have the metal wire to take out the stuck lead.

At this price point is hard to find a better value !!! The pencil has awesome build quality and is also very interesting. Somebody complained about the clip and upper body of the pencil however this is not a $50 plus pencil. I was very surprised by the metal barrel :). Only Lamy has nice clips actually.

The build quality is awesome ! The pencil feels heavy and the mechanism solid. I don't actually see the need for the trick with the lead tube with spring but whatever. It adds some extra lag and pushing the lead back does not feel smooth.
