It works great, but I absentmindedly put it in my back pocket for a couple of weeks and the spring came off at some point and was lost, and the middle portion snapped. I think it still functions, but as I can't put it in my back pocket anymore I stopped using it...but otherwise this is a great little notepad. I'll probably consider buying a replacement at some point.

Foxy leadholder for drawing

I own the 925 25 2mm holder, which differs in style and purpose.
*I enjoy the Kaweco more for drawing, due to the thick body and long, tapered nose. The angle of the taper allows for unhindered gesture drawing (holding the pencil at a 30-degree angle to the paper, utilizing the flat edge of your lead), as opposed to the 925, whose relatively more blunt nose can scratch against your paper.
*The grip is nice, a soft, black finish that, while lacking in texture, keeps the pencil in my sweaty hands without issue. In fact the wide body and lack of raspy metal grip makes long drawing sessions a pleasure.
*Just like any other drafiting/drawing pencil... Do not drop this! I dropped mine on a concrete floor, and the nose/ sleeve dented, preventing the lead from advancing and the end cap came loose. It was fixed with some creative use of pliers and metal clips--easily enough, though a little stressful.
*Bang! Excellent pencil for drawing!
*Boom! Expensive! Most folks will never understand!
But worth it.

In case you were wondering...opaque!

Knock-style! A loud knock too! I have put a red foam rubber grip on the front and use it as a sidearm for my Staedtler 925-02. Without the after-market grip, I'd rate it a 4 because the wood seems to be a little harder and sharp edged than most wooden pencils. Usually knock-style 2mm leadholders are more spendy, so this is a must-buy IMHO for drafting/mechanical pencil fanatics.

For the price this is a cute enough lead pointer, but it is no rival to the reliability or precision of the Uni-ball lead pointer.
Pro: Cheap enough not to break your heart (or bank) if you lose it.
Cons: Sometimes grabs the lead and turns it within the leadholder, and can be messy if not emptied regularly.

Smooth, a little too grey at times, sweet container.

I would definitely reach for a Pentel p205 before this pencil, unless I wanted to show off the shaker function. Although for shakers, there are cheaper and better pencils. Unless you are into the whole front heavy thing, then here's the front heavy drafting pencil with shaker function that you always wanted! Except that too much lead comes out when I shake it once. My girlfriend thinks its cool so I gave it to her. Meh.

I love jetpens mostly for the drafting pencils and boxy erasers, but I fell hard for this fountain pen and got one, lost it, and got another because I couldn't deal with the loss.

Is good. I use it for red pen. What fun!
