Probably my favourite...
Probably my favourite drafting pencil among my small collection. It looks great and it feels great. Mind you the price is a little on the higher side but the quality and feel really show. Its the first tip heavy mechanical pencil so it took a while to get use to but I actually prefer it. The edgy cap where my fingers press into actually makes my hand tired while writing exams but that's just nitpicking at this point. The feel of the knurled grip, the brushed metal parts, even the transparent plastic body all look and feel amazing. It has a professional look to it yet still has that element of fun. If only it wasn't a transparent black body but a blue one, I would be extremely happy. Still, the S10 stood by me as I plowed through my final year.

Just a warning to other S10 owners or to-be owners, the tip can be rather dangerous to yourself and itself. I've seen someone bend their S10 tip before resulting in failure to advance the lead. Luckily I was able to fix it by rounding out the tip again.

Not a bad mechanical...
Not a bad mechanical pencil to match with your notebook but it is very specific built for Moleskine products. Its a little on the pricier side and the lack of a 0.5mm version has me quite disappointed. The rectangular body actually gives a good gripping surface without making it feel too bulky. The plastic body actually feels decent with a slight textured surface. I find the lead advancing mechanism a little on the spongy and cheap side. It doesn't have a crisp feel that other mechanical or drafting pencils of equivalent price point have to offer. Its a very nifty and minimalistic mechanical pencil but not exactly a recommended pencil for every day use.
