I like this pencil a lot, it's managed to survive with me for a whole year so
far, and I hope it won't get lost like all my other pencils :P!
The Pentel Graphgear 500 has it's pros and cons, though. The pros (for me);
- How indestructible it is. It's very durable (I dropped it once on it's point,
but with a tiny tweak the tip straightened and it's never bent since! This is
one of those rare pencils that can bounce back from an injury. I also like this
grip, it might look painful and awkward but my fingers have liked it from the
- It's weight. It's not insanely heavy, but it still settles in your hand
comfortably. I like to clip my pencils to my shirt collar, and this pencil lets
me do that since it's not so heavy that it tugs my shirt downwards but still has
a nice heft to it.
- It's reliablity. This little guy hasn't choked on lead ONCE since I've had it,
I kid you not! The clicking mechanism is very sound on this pencil, which is a
MAJOR relief - who likes a lead-crunching pencil?! (not me!)
- The clip. It slides on and off, which is nice for people who dislike the clip,
but I personally like the clip and this pencil's clip tends to be a bit
- The eraser, but this is a complaint I have about a lot of pencils in general.
The eraser is pretty small and short, and if you push down hard when you erase
(like I do), the eraser slides in sometimes, which I find a bit annoying.
However, my personal solution to this issue was to get a Pentel Tri-Eraser (a
precision eraser who's unique triangular shape ensures you always have a precise
tip to erase with), and now I save my GraphGear 500's eraser for small mistakes
i LOVED this pencil! it has 6 functions-binder clip, eraser, 3 pens(red, blue &
black) and a mechanical pencil! the sparkly metallic body is cool without being
too flashy. to top it all off,this pencil just fits in my hoodie pocket! BUY
THIS PENCIL!!! Its WORTH it!!!
its a good pen. only, if you're a press-hard-when-drawing person like me, pen
leaves a shadow of a bleed-through . even when written with normally.but all in
all, a good pen. like it as a set - i have the others too.
my mom just showed me this site and i discovered these pens that she got me a
while ago! my pals cant get enough of these, and even wanted to swap other pens
for them!I think they're best as a set, and i LOVE the soap scent!!!!!!!!Also
the sakura one-and this set of pens has the best chocolate scent on a pen I've
