I've used one of these cases for about four years now, throughout undergrad and now into grad school. It's nice to always know where my pens, pencils, highlighters, erasers, etc. are. They have a home and aren't just rattling around in my backpack. Placed on the table during lectures, it keeps you have having to root around in your bag to find something you need.
The one thing I would add is a D-ring to tether it to my bag ala Tom Bihn.
Overall a great case. I love it, and people I've given them to as gifts also love them.

I gave this as a gift, and my friend really likes it. She says it is great for team meetings where she takes notes using the pencil, and uses different colors of ink to underline and draw attention to various details.
From my handling of the pen, it has a very nice, quality feel with a nice weight.

I much prefer the "Roulette" in 0.5mm to this pencil. The grip is slippery on this pencil and is not knurled like the Roulette. Also the 0.3mm lead is just too fragile to power the lead rotation mechanism. In other words you need a certain amount of pressure to rotate the lead, but that pressure is close to the failure point of the 0.3mm lead. My advice is to go for the Roulette, it's a beautiful pencil.

I like the feel of the rubber-like body, the clip is sturdy, and the whole pen has an interesting look. The thing I don't like is the line width is huge, and appears to easily be 0.7mm or even 1.0mm in width.

I love this pencil!
Having to turn the pencil has always annoyed me, but I didn't know someone had invented a solution. It's very nice. Line width is consistent, with no lead scratching the paper like when I had to turn the pencil manually.
It feels great in my hand too. I really like the knurled aluminum grip area. The pencil even has a small o-ring near the grip to keep the grip from scratching the table if it is slid across it.
I use the pencil mainly for doing math homework and printing notes for other subjects. The tip rotates at a perfect rate.
There is just the slightest give to the tip of the pencil, and a very slight ticking sound, but no louder than some other mechanical pencils, and about the same loudness as the lead actually writing on the paper. Nothing to worry about, I'm one of those people that hears everything.
I think this is the best pencil I've ever owned. It would make a great instrument for yourself, or a great gift.
