First let me say that...
First let me say that I have NO clue what a "lead holder" is and it's function. I have a voracious need to collect all styles of mechanical pencils, but had never heard of a lead holder until I found this site. Can you write with them? I'm just a little confused. If someone could explain the usage of these, I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you in advance!!!!!!

Wonderful!!
I purchased a few of these erasers about a year ago and have had fantastic luck with them. I've since tried the other erasers shown here at JetPens but none compared really. They actually hold up. All the other stick style erasers I've tried all back into the tube when you try to use them (I'm a little heavy handed) but these Ain erasers hold up remarkably well. I completely recommend!

Beautiful pencil through and through. The price was just right and the weight and balance of the pencil is remarkable. The looks of the pencil are very unique and stylish. I'm glad I bought one of every color because I think these will go like crazy once they catch on. Superior product for the price and the mechanism for advancing lead is very smooth! Nice job with this one!

Very poorly designed...
Verified Purchase
Very poorly designed for the pencil user in mind. There are no instructions on how to refill the pencil nor does it look as if it will hold more than two sticks of lead. The pens write fine, but I purchased it to be primarily a pencil and that's just not working for me. Too bad I purchased two of them. They do not come in any type of packaging that would offer directions for use either.

Smooth beauty this one is! This Azure Blue completed my collection of these fine mechanical pencils. I own all four now and hold on to them with greedy delight. They're a little on the hefty side, but I personally like that about the pencil. It's just a delight.

Being in college I do a LOT of writing and I can honestly say that I've tried just about every pencil out there. I ordered this one because my favorite color is orange but was mildly surprised at it's looks, feel and functionality. I have an $80 pencil that doesn't feel as good as this in my hand! I've now ordered one in every color and you just can't beat the price!

I have never been so...
Verified Purchase
I have never been so disappointed in a product before now. While I must admit that this lead puts down a beautiful dark line, it has a penchant for smudging really bad and breaks at every turn of the pencil. I had high hopes for this lead but as I said, am disappointed. Coming from a product that normally sells for about 3.00 for the same amount of lead to this at nearly 5.00 per tube? What's the extra 2.00 for? Don't waste your money!

Absolutely love this pen and the color. In fact I'm ordering backups now. Very smooth flow, beautiful almost burnt orange color which is fabulous! Thanks for the great pen and the even better price.

I am not at all impressed with this lead. I write a lot for college and using this lead was labor-intensive. It isn't smooth like some of the other leads. So far I feel Tombow blows them all out of the water.

Looks nice, but that's where it stops. For the price I expected so much more. The mechanics of the pencil are extremely clunky and lead doesnt always advance.
