I've bought the S10 and the cheaper pilots. They are all great. Something about
the shape that make them feel good in the hand. The S10 is obviously heavier and
a high quality item. They also have a real neat look to them. I think it is the
cool clip that really sets them off. If you want a nice pencil but don't want
the look of a machine shop...This is a good choice. The plastic upper body has
been said to make it look cheap...I disagree. A nice mix if color and metal. I
also like the cap on the top. It will accomodate a pencil arrow cap eraser and
wont wobble because the cap has a long stem. Some other caps fall off easy and
wont handle the added eraser. I like to putt the cap eraser on because I need a
quick eraser for everyday use. It does however make the lead hardness indicator
useless. I don't use it anyway. Strange that these are not available many places
except for JetPens.
Oh by the way. How do these guys ship cross country so fast??? Great service.
They must know that pen and pencil people are geeky and like their stuff fast!
