Uni Kuru Toga High Grade Auto Lead Rotation Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Black Body - UNI M510121P.24
  Good pencil priced right...., October 19, 2011
Good pencil priced right. Looks good, grip works fine for me, works as advertised. Kuru Toga engine is more of a novelty than necessity for me, but very cool anyway. Writing in cursive somewhat reduces the effect of the auto-rotation, since you activate the action less often. Glad I bought it.
Pilot S20 Drafting Pencil - 0.5 mm - Dark Brown Body - PILOT HPS-2SK-DBN5
  My new Go To Pencil...., October 10, 2011
My new Go To Pencil. Out of all my mechanical pencils (& I have quite a few) this has quickly become my primary tool. If you appreciate good mechanical pencils like me, enough to have a collection of them, that says it all. Listed as a drafting pencil it is very comfortable for writing also. If you just need a pencil, there are less expensive ones that will do the job. This one does it with comfort, quality, & class.
Pilot S3 Drafting Pencil - 0.4 mm - PILOT HPS-30R-TR4

About as good as it gets for the price. Hard to find 0.4mm size. Has a wire pipe cleaner on standard eraser, extremely light. I am a fan of the Pilot S series, the S3 does not disappoint.
Pentel Smash Drafting Pencil - 0.5 mm - PENTEL Q1005-1
  Smashed by the Smash!..., August 20, 2011
Smashed by the Smash! Love it, not sure why. Maybe it is the feedback it gives you- the way it sounds, the way it feels when you hold it, the way it feels when you're writing with it. It all says the pencil is quality & you're cool for having it.

I was showing it off to a friend at work, it went like this:
"What's so special about it?"
"Have you ever seen one like it?"
"No."
I smile.

Wouldn't hurt my feelings if it was a few dollars less, but I'll get the blue if I can find it (hint, hint JP) and probably another black just to have it. Cool pencil that just works.

It's all that! Striking color, quality make, elegant look, flawless function. Have this pencil in blue, red, black, & olive, never had a problem with any of them. Very satisfied owner. Very good value for the price.

Striking color, quality make, elegant look, flawless function. Quality all around.
Ohto Promecha 500P Drafting Pencil - 0.4 mm - OHTO SP-504P
  Nice pencil in hard-to-find..., July 29, 2011
Nice pencil in hard-to-find 0.4mm. Clean, attractive design. Nice grip & smooth satiny finish. Thin & light, the weight is way towards the front. If you want a big heavy pencil this is not it. Standard sized eraser (i.e., very small) worked surprisingly well. Comes with guide pipe wire (nice! some companies are leaving this out now). Good deal for the $.
Ohto Super Promecha 1500P Drafting Pencil - 0.4 mm - OHTO PM-1504P
  So very mixed... Everything..., July 29, 2011
So very mixed... Everything about this pencil is great, except for the pencil itself. The design, the look, the features, the ability to customize are all great. The quality of the pencil itself however is extremely low for a pencil at this price point. When you advance the lead or remove the eraser cover it seems like the internal mechanisms are loose and moving around inside. The internal pipe seems like a piece of plastic they took out of a cheap pencil & put in this expensive one. I must admit I really like the grip, and I do like the ability to change the guide pipe length. Plus the fact that the pencil comes in 0.4mm is a definite plus.

I think I would hate to be a pencil designer for Ohto- this is a fantastically designed pencil that does not live up to its potential because of poor quality construction. I have pencils that cost much much less that are better made. There is a lot that I really like about this pencil, and reading reviews from a couple years ago people rave about it, but the quality of the pencil I recently purchased does not justify the premium price.
Pilot S10 Drafting Pencil - 0.4 mm - PILOT HPS-1SR-TR4
  Great first impression!..., July 29, 2011
Great first impression! I have a lot of mechanical pencils & am not easily impressed. Normally I would wait until I have used something a while to write a review, but I can tell immediately this is a well made pencil. I like it. Nice weight, well balanced, even sounds good. All metal grip is long enough to work for a wide range of writing styles. This is a working tool not a showpiece. I have other pencils that look cooler (a lot cooler in fact) but expect to pick this one up regularly because of the quality build. Makes me want to spring for the nice wooden S20!
Pentel Graph Gear 500 Drafting Pencil - 0.9 mm - PENTEL PG529N
  Workhorse of a pencil...., July 22, 2011
Workhorse of a pencil. Gets the job done, never had any problems with it, good value. The knurled grip seems to have the right balance between grip-ability and comfort. I have pencils that cost twice as much that don't feel as sturdy as this guy.
