This is a good lead. It writes smoothly and lays a nice dark line. Most
importantly, it is strong. I haven't broken any yet.
My only qualm with this lead, if I can describe this correctly, is this: I like
to write on the "edge" of the lead. When I first load the lead I scribble on a
piece of paper to get a nice 45 degree angle on it. I then write with the edge
of that 45 degree angle to give me more precision, and I like how it "grips" the
paper a bit more. With this lead though, it seems too soft and when I write it
builds up lead particles on the lead itself which needs to be blown away after
writing a few lines. Not a huge issue, but my Uni lead does not do this on 0.4
or my 0.3.
Hopefully this all makes sense. Besides that it is a very good lead.
Let me start off by saying that I love this product. It erases very well,
handling it is a pleasure. The only downside I have is that the barrel (where
the thread is) has already developed 2 cracks, so if you erase at a certain
angle the black tip falls off.
I don't erase hard, and it has remained in a backback that is lined and not very
flexible. Not entirely sure how it happened. But I would definately buy it
again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a clean eraser with great
Let me start out by saying that I use this pencil for writing. I love precision
and I write pretty small so I used a Zebra M-301 .5mm for years. Then I
discovered JetPens. I purchased this pencil based off of the reviews on this
site and have not been disappointed.
-The build quality, aesthitics, and feel are great.
-The pencil is heavier than what I am used to, but very comfortable to write
-I hold the pencil close to the tip and have no problems with writing.
-The grip is actually comfortable and offers control over the pencil.
