Eraser is ok but not great. The plastic body cracked where it has a screw-in tip, got to reorder until better one is produced.

I liked this pencil more...
Verified Purchase
I liked this pencil more when it was new. Don't get me wrong, it's a very precise and cool-looking tool that's had no trouble whatsoever on the inside. However, if your fingers are just a little sweaty, or you touched your face before you took this mechanical pencil then its rubber inserts are quickly becoming just as slippery as their absence would be. My second and last issue with this pencil is that after a year of so of not so intensive use, the rubber grips started making clicking sound when you squeeze and release the grip. It seems to me that the base of those rubber inserts is sticking and then coming off of whatever is underneath with the clicking/snapping sound, which distracts attention from drawing. One last note is that my other pencil, exactly the same one except it’s 0.7 mm did not make clicking sound when you pressed to extend the lead. As if something was missing in it from the start, wonder if it might be a quality control issue.

Verified Purchase
Looks and feels sturdy built and dependable, also has a very good grip (one of the most comfortable grips out there) - the only thing why I'm critical just a little bit is the clip that's made of the light-reflecting silver metal, so at some angles it may shoot light in your face because the clip is not brushed metal but instead, is polished like a mirror. One other minor distraction during the use might be that the plastic barrel (a little prone to bending if you like to check that out) could be felt as being not firmly attached to the metal grip, so there is a little movement between the plastic and metal, just very minor movement. To tell the truth though, I prefer this one pencil to Pentel's Graph 1000 and Graph 600, and the price is one third and one half respectively.

Verified Purchase
Although I haven't got .7 but only .9, I can swear by the name of art that it's better than Pentel Ain. Due to the diamond particles perhaps, it produces this delictable S sound when you draw. Not so low wear though :) . I'd say it'snormal wear, perhaps just 10 percent lower compared to Uni Hi-Uni. According to Jetpens study, Pentel Ain is best for writing. Uni Hi-Uni is best for drawing. And this one is even betterh than Uni Hi-uni.

Got it with the ruface scratched. Which is, after I unknowingly, trying to change the refil, broke the previous one, an unfortunate event!!!

Verified Purchase
Too bad it only has 20 pcs of lead, compared to 36 and 40 of Uni and Ain and other leads for the same price. I didn't even look at the quantity of leads when I ordered.

Verified Purchase
Traces of plastic fusion on the upper part, which says, the quality of plastic barrel is not quite superb. However the rest of it feels like it's gonna last you a lifetime. I like to look at visual traces of fused plastic as the signature of the tree pulp, which is often the case with wooden instruments.

Verified Purchase
My hands are a bit towards small, I have smallish hands and the thickness of the grip is just a bit too thick, it feels like a little too much. Although it's same thickness as Pentel's Graphgear 500, which is ok, still it feels like thicker. You could get used however, I guess. I think it felt thickish after Pentel Graph 1000. The quality is super and I begin to like how the thin line it leaves interacts with the body, which is, again I say a little too thick in the grip. Perhaps just a millimeter off would make it PERFECT

Verified Purchase
I love the hiss with which the graphite wears away, It's special feeling and this lead has the particular hiss that does not compare to Uni Hi-Uni, Pentel Ain and others... perhaps the diamond particles? I dunno, but feels like a chalk or something in between normal graphite and more wearable stuff, whereas it wears really slow compared to others. Good stuff. You could almost feel that s' -sound.
