Great pencil! I have koh-i-noor rapidomatics and rotrings in the same style. The retractable tip is really nice. The only thing I don't love is the grip is a little too smooth. I can't find a grip like the old koh-i-noors that are really sharp diamonds. I got the black but wish I had gotten the sliver.

I got 2 of these as a replacement for my Koh-I-Noor rapidmatic which finally broke. This pencil looks awesome but doesn't come close to the koh-i-noor. The two biggest differences are the lack of the nice low center of gravity and the knurling grip is slippery in comparison. Wish I had tried the Alvin but still like it in my "collection".
