I bought this pencil with my first order because i needed a new .3 pencil and i
really love it! I do find it a bit annoying that the tip isnt retractable, but
it wont really be a problem so long as its kept on a desk or in a snug case.
also the top bit of the pencil that lets you show the type of lead you're using
is difficult to turn. Overall, if you can go with a .5, theres a lot better
pencils you can get for a little less, but i know im gonna be using this pencil
a lot while the tip lasts
