This is a nice eraser...
May 19, 2012
This is a nice eraser for erasing micro-details. I'm very happy with it and it complements my larger Staedtler eraser stick. One minor criticism is the mechanism allows the eraser to be pushed back up the sleeve if you apply to much pressure. Not a problem. You don't need to apply much pressure when erasing small detail. However if the sponginess bothers you then just by the refills and stuff it in an extra 2mm leadholder you may happen to have. A leadholder would actually allow you to use up almost the entire eraser because the leadholder jaws require little area to firmly hold the eraser in place.

The Stad pencil Holder...
May 7, 2012
The Stad pencil Holder also makes for a wicked, slick Eraser stick when using the Staedtler 528 55 MarsĀ® refill plastic erasers . I searched long and hard for a good-looking quality metal eraser stick to replace my cheapy plastic versions and bought one of these in hopes it would work. Well it far exceeded my expectations as it holds snugly and tightly the Staedtler refill eraser while the jaws stay in it's resting retracted position as you see in the picture without a pencil in it. It looks absolutely great and now my search for a beautful Stick eraser is finally over. The kicker is these holders are pretty economical too.

Sorry to hear you discontinued...

Sorry to hear you discontinued the sale of Pentel PG2 .02mm Pencil. I nfinally bought one and it's a great pencil. Any set that includes the thinnest lead available will be my leading favorite. I guess there are a few places that can sell it for half the price you're selling yours so I can understand why you won't sell it anymore.

I own a wide variety of mechanical pencils, many found here at Jetpens as a matter of fact, and some found elsewhere. This Rotring 500 design is among my top 2 favorites. The other is a Pentel design not found here. 'Nuff said.

The UNI "H" .3mm lead is equivalent to Pentel's "HB" lead. If you're going to use different lead grades, then stick to one brand, otherwise you'll end up wasting money on something you didn't expect like I did.

Please disregard previous comment. I made an error. 0.4mm leads do not work in .5mm mechanical pencils. Well at least not in the Pentels I mentioned. Sorry.

This is a nice lead thickness if one finds the .5mm too thick. No need to purchase a .4mm specific pencil. I use these .04mm leads in my pentel P205, Graphlet PG305, Sharplet-.05 and mini-Sharp .5mm mechanical pencils without nary a problem. Should work great in all the other Pentel .5mm's as well. No slop and no breakage. It works perfect!

Wow! Beautiful to look...
August 21, 2010
Wow! Beautiful to look at and ultra-comfortable to write with. No time wasted searching for a comfortable grip. You're ready to go when you pick it up. I think the short 2nd step on the nose coupled with a no-slip grip that's neither too wide or thin lend to the high level of comfort, and whether I hold it high on the grip for drawing lines or low, close to the tip for writing meticulously small which I do often, it always feels one with the hand. It's balanced weight also helps and the all aluminum finish gives it class and durability. 2 thumbs up!

Yes. I bought the complete set of 5. A great looking all-metal pencil for under $8/pc. Maybe the best set of pencils for the price. Great design, durable aluminum, unique-style grip, short-compact(138mm), thin barrel, ISO color-coded, long step-nose for high visibility. Earlier models have a course, coated metal-flake finish that is prone to scratching and scuffing but the current models have a smooth natural brushed-aluminum finish that has a nice sheen to it.

I bought this pencil for it's unique "syringe" like design. Pentel ruined the design by adding a capped end on the new revised models. You gain a lead hardness indicator, but aesthetically it looks worse. The plunger cap complements the needle nose tip on this design.
For me personally it's not the most comfortable to write with, since I like to grip the pencil as close to tip as possible. For me the thicker barrel at the grip and it's unique needle nose tip are not conducive to comfort... for ME. For most this won't be a problem. I also don't like the unseamly look of where the hexagonal barrel meets the tubular metal grip. However These are very minor criticisms based on personel preferences.
Overall, it has good weight thanks to the metal knurled grip. It's a short pencil at 141mm. It has Pentel's quality brass clutch lead advance mechanism. It's relatively inexpensive and it's got a good-looking profile.
