Platinum Preppy Fountain Pen - 03 Fine Nib - Black Ink - PLATINUM PPQ-200 1
  Terrible! The great news..., October 25, 2010
Terrible! The great news about this pen is that the nib is phenomenal for the price. Smooth, and you can let the pen sit for two months and it will still write. That part is amazing, but a) the plastic is cheap and brittle and cracks easily, and b) the cap assembly gets loose and the pen won't stay closed.

A tough call, but I think I like this one better than the more expensive version. It is slightly too light, and I'd prefer it to be heavier, but the rotation mechanism isn't as pronounced in this version. Plus the transparent grip shows a bit of the design, which is great.

I first used the S series pencils after I found one at Wal-Mart, so I sprung for this one when I saw the more elegant design. The balance is great and the pencil is beautiful, and -- at the risk of inviting criticism -- I used 400 grit sandpaper to reduce the sleeve to about 1/3 its standard length. By doing that the pencil is better suited for general writing and still has all of its design qualities.
Pilot Delful Double Knock Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Black & Green - PILOT HDF-50R-BG
  Amazing pencil! Can't..., October 20, 2010
Amazing pencil! Can't wait until you restock the other colors. The size and weight are wonderful, bigger than I expected, but very solid and balanced. Plus the shaker mechanism is great in a pencil with a bigger grip. I had the original Pilot Shaker a long time ago, but the grip was much more narrow and not really made for writing.
Uni Kuru Toga High Grade Auto Lead Rotation Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - White Body - UNI M510121P.1
  Agreed that the writing..., October 20, 2010
Agreed that the writing experience is a bit different, but for me it doesn't slip and the weight is great. Very well made. The mechanism has a slight "click" feel to it sometimes, often related to the paper, but not terrible at all. Tough part is getting use to NOT spinning the pencil when writing for anyone who has developed that habit. All around very elegant.
