Rotring 600 Drafting Pencil - 0.35 mm - Silver Body - ROTRING 502613
  The Rotring 600, although..., May 13, 2012
The Rotring 600, although narrower and slightly less comfortable than the Staedtler 925-25, is my favorite due to its solid construction. The Rotring 600 can feel unbalanced if I grab it too close to the tip. Nevertheless, its absolute precision elegantly accompanies its distinctive, clinical appearance. If I could only choose one pencil, it would be this one.
Staedtler REG Regulator Drafting Pencil - 0.3 mm - STAEDTLER 92585-03
  The Staedtler Regulator..., May 13, 2012
The Staedtler Regulator is really neat with its ability to adjust how much lead comes out per click. The grip is comfortable, though a little bit too wide (which you might like), and the pencil doesn't feel as solid as say the Rotring 600. For me, the Staedtler 925-25-03 has the perfect width. However, neither of the Staedtlers feels as solid as the Rotring 600 (which though a bit narrow, doesn't rattle like the Staedtler under pressure).
Staedtler 925-25 Silver Series Drafting Pencil - 0.3 mm - STAEDTLER 92525-03
  The Staedtler 925-25-03..., May 13, 2012
The Staedtler 925-25-03 is my second favorite for its comfort and precision (my favorite is the Rotring 600). The width is ideal, and the weight is balanced. However, the cap tends to rattle when I'm writing small characters quickly (perhaps I'm pushing hard under pressure, but this isn't a problem I have with the Rotring). Nevertheless, I can see the Staedtler 925 being chosen above the Rotring and viceversa. They are both wonderful pencils.
Pentel Graph 1000 for Pro Drafting Pencil - 0.3 mm - PENTEL PG1003

The Graph 1000 has a really nice feel to the click, and its overall construction is solid (for a plastic pencil), but I don't really like the grip, and I prefer heavier, metal pencils.
Zebra Sharbo X LT3 Pen Body Component - Silver - ZEBRA SB22-S
  When you first get it,..., June 5, 2011
When you first get it, it is beautiful. But even with care, the pen gets nicked and dented easily. After a few months of use, the paint flakes off. Wish that the finish was permanent and not superficial.
Pilot Hi-Tec-C Slims Gel Ink Multi Pen Refill - 0.3 mm - Black - PILOT LHRF-20C3-B
  I judge my multipens..., February 13, 2011
I judge my multipens by whether or not they can fit this component. This is the best writing instrument. It isn't as smooth as a wider tip; however, the very slight scratchiness gives you greater control over each of your characters. The line is extremely fine and looks perfect.
Pilot Hi-Tec-C Cavalier Gel Ink Pen - 0.4 mm - Silver Accents - Black Body - PILOT LCA-1SRC4-B
  This is a magnificent..., February 13, 2011
This is a magnificent pen. I adore the .3mm gel ink refills.

Two warnings: (1) the cap will scratch up the tip of the pen. It is a very tight cap and it will erode the widest part of the tip after some use. Nevertheless, the cap will never fully erode the tip, and even after six months of heavy use, the cap snaps on quite securely. (2) You will probably end up holding the cap in your hand or storing it somewhere (like your pocket or pencil case) because the cap makes the pen awkwardly top heavy. I always end up using the pen without the cap.
Zebra Mini TS-3 Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Silver Body - ZEBRA TS-3

Would be perfect if available in .3mm. When you receive this pencil, it will be smaller than you imagined! That is the satisfaction of ordering such a compact and handy writing utensil. Now I can conveniently carry it with the current book I read for underlining. Useful for simple tasks like occasionally writing short notes, underlining, and bracketing passages in a text. However, don't expect to write for very long since this tiny pen will probably cramp your hand (unless you are a young child)!
Pentel Sharp Kerry Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Black Body - PENTEL P1035A
  I wish these pencils..., February 13, 2011
I wish these pencils were available in .3mm. Beside that, these are the most elegant mechanical pencils I've ever seen.

The pencil is really, really well designed. Many pens and pencils with caps function poorly with the cap on the back end, and I usually have to store the cap while using the writing utensil. Not the Kerry. The cap becomes the rest of the pencil into an elegant writing form.
Pentel Sharp Kerry Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Red Body - PENTEL P1035B
  I wish these pencils..., February 13, 2011
I wish these pencils were available in .3mm. Beside that, these are the most elegant mechanical pencils I've ever seen. The red is really striking. I use mine with red lead.
