Pen writes well and is smooth. Have no problems with the loose top and would buy again. This is a quality workhorse.

Purchased because I wanted to see what the buzz was about for this famous pencil:

--Nice aesthetics and finish. I like the blue color and grade marker on the end covering all facets.
--Bought this for writing and find it a good pencil, moderately dark in B with a core that is smoother but only a little lighter than a similar 2B Koh-I-Noor Toison D'Or. Its about as dark as a Faber Castell 9000 B and smoother.
--I'd buy this again...unless JetPens decides to bring in more interesting woodcase pencils!

Don't know what kind of wood this is but it doesn't seem to be cedar; maybe jelutong/basswood. Sharpening is easy and clean. The B point holds up well and should last for many paragraphs before sharpening.

This is a pretty good stick eraser except for one thing; don't ever take the tip off. If you do and then put it back you might start a small hairline body crack that will eventually cause the tip to fall off. I fixed mine with crazy glue and its fine now, except for the cracks! For the price its very hard to fault and I would buy yet another (have two already).

Verified Purchase
A well built triangular shaped pencil. The best feature is the core; it is dark but wears very well, holding up to long bouts of writing and drawing. The finishing is not the greatest when compared against the Hi Uni, Mono, or blackwing, and the distinct aroma of cedar is not present. However, the look is unique and the user experience good due to the great core and easy sharpening. I would buy this again, just for its unique design and good writing quality.

Verified Purchase
A superior pencil holder worthy of making the last bit of a Mono 100 or other great pencil shine. The knurled grip feels good and rotating the holder to maintain pencil points is easy. The clip and built in eraser makes this easy to carry as well. Overall, a very functional and useful writing tool for whoever likes to use wood cased pencils.

A somewhat not so easy to find sharpener and very pleased there's an easy source to find them now. There's a level of precision in this bullet sharpener that is missing from the standard wedge Kum making it far better and a joy to use. Thanks Jetpens for bringing this little gem in.

Well made and constructed. Grip area is OK. Weight is not particularly heavy and the sliding sleeve works extremely well in protecting the point. Simple, clean design well worth its price.

Verified Purchase
A well constructed, well designed mechanical pencil. Overall length is good but somewhat miss having a clip. The faceted design helps to keep it from rolling off the desk. I would buy another in 0.7 mm. Thanks JetPens.

A solid well constructed pencil. Looks great in silver or black. No rattling, no looseness at contact point with paper, click action is nice and tight.

Verified Purchase
Decided to try this after reading with fascination about the Kuru Toga engine. This pen works very well and it is a little strange at first to not rotate one's pencil while writing. The point stays sharp and the interaction one has while writing is a bit different as there's a ghost in the machine doing the lead rotation for you. The grip is a little slippery but not so bad that its tiring for long note taking sessions. Definitately interesting and welcome.
