Great pencil. Love the retractable feature. Wish the lead rotated like the Kuru Toga, though!

Installed in a new Platinum OLEeNU Shield mechanical pencil. Writes very very smoothly but a bit on the soft side.

I agree with benjamindk1 - I wish the collar retracted. I love my current Kuru Toga and would gladly pay for a more expensive model -- if I could safely carry it around in my shirt pocket without stabbing myself.

This is my favorite mechanical pencil. Works exactly as advertised -- the tip is aways sharp -- note that it works best on really smooth paper (I'm using mostly Miquelrius A5 notebooks these days for my handwriting). One positive note -- I accidentally let it go through the wash but caught it just before it went through the dryer. It was soaked but after a day it had dried out and now works just like new. I do like the design; I like seeing the "works" at the tip.

This is a great little pen. It is a bit short in my hand when writing but quite useable. The line (the "medium" nib seems more like a "fine" nib) is really nice and seems to have a slight variation in shape that gives the line an elegant appearance. Not enough to be considered calligraphic but just enough to be noticeable. My only complaint is that the blue ink cartrideg that came with the pen is very light when the ink dries; a bit darker would have been preferable. Maybe the blue Kaweco cartidges I bought with it will dry a bit darker. Overall, a very good buy.

This is a terrific little pen - very clean, smooth, and solid, with a great fine line. My only criticism is that the refill is so short.

I love the writing feel but the "fine" tip actually flows like a "medium." Wish it were refillable.
