Uni Kuru Toga Auto Lead Rotation Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Blue Body - UNI M54501P.33
  Let's take a look at..., April 24, 2013
Let's take a look at the pros and cons, shall we?

Pros:

> The pencil tip always stays the same size
> There is somewhat of a grip which makes it somewhat comfortable
> It's fun to explain how it works to a friend, classmate, or co-worker which is facilitated by the transparent area around the grip which shows the mechanics
> The color is absolutely GORGEOUS
> All together, it's a really nice shape and color

Cons:

> There is no upper-grip for those of you who like holding the pencil a bit higher up
> The color chips off really easily
> It will likely be stolen if left unattended

Conclusion:

This pencil is fairly nice and very useful. The price is reasonable as well. However, there are a few drawbacks, some of which have the potential to be solved. All in all, I would totally recommend buying it.
Uni Alpha Gel 2 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencil - Deep Blue Grip - UNI MSE1007GG1PD33
  Let's take a look at..., April 21, 2013
Let's take a look at the pros and cons, shall we?

Pros:

> Has a red pen, black pen, and 0.5 pencil all in one
> The grip is soft enough to be comfortable, yet firm enough to provide support
> There is a lower grip for those of you who like to hold your pencils and pens lower
> The color is absolutely GORGEOUS

Cons:

> The eraser does not work
> People will always try to steal it from you, or bug you until they can have it

Rebuttal to Cons:

> Uni Ball did not advertise this as having an eraser; just look at the product description, so there does not need to be a working eraser if it is not advertised that way
> A solution to not having an eraser is to just carry around another eraser with you, because even if this pen/pencil did have an eraser, it probably would not have been good quality, so a better way would be to carry a good eraser around with you
> If you are afraid of it being stolen, be very careful with it at school and/or work. Just either keep it in your pocket or clip it to your shirt

Conclusion:

This pen/pencil has lots of great features, but a few potential drawbacks. However, there are simple solutions to those drawbacks. I would highly recommend this for students and as a gift for any stationary fanatic. The price is reasonable, but shipping price is kind of expensive. Especially since I live in the Bay Area, the same area as JetPens. However, at stores, it costs about $22.00, so I guess shipping is to compensate for the low price. If you have even the slightest desire to own this pen/pencil, don't hesitate another minute. Click the "Add to Cart" Button now!
