Very good drafting style mechanical pencil. I've used the Zebra Drafix and this one has a better grip due to the metal knurling on the Uni. The cap, clip, tip and grip is metal but rest is plastic. The balance is not front heavy as it looks due to the grip is a metal sleeve and not solid metal. For the value, the Zebra is better, but if you don't have this one in your collection its a good choice.

Light and easy to hold with its triangular body. The rubber like coating makes it easy to grip, but it does pick up a little lint here and there. It writes quite smoothly and glides over most paper surfaces with ease. I only saw B and 2B Campus lead refills for this but is safe to assume its in the soft category and not an HB or H. Overall a good pencil to have around for any use but not having a clip makes it less pocketable.

A no nonsense mechanical pencil for both drafting and writing. I like the 0.7mm leads for writing as they don't break as easy as the thinner leads. Feels good in the hands and priced right. Eraser is a bit small like most mechanical pencils, so I'd recommend a small to medium eraser to go with it.

There are no frills like a capped end or an eraser, but it is a very good general pencil to write with. The lead is one grade softer than indicated compared to US designations. I've tried both the HB and F and feel the F was better to write with. The point lasted a bit longer and though firm was pretty smooth. If you like a softer darker line, go with the HB or B. The wood sharpens nicely and the leads are quite centered.

Verified Purchase
This 2mm clutch pencil is good for writing, drafting or sketching. It is made mainly out of plastic (the cap, barrel and inner chamber). The pocket clip is thin but is useable. Each pencil has it's own grade marked, so if you want to use various grades of lead you'll need a few of these pencils in their designations. I kind of wished it had a rotating grade indicator but with some of the lower costing pencils they aren't very well implemented. The clutch is a 3 prong which I feel is not as good as with a four prong like in the Koh-i-noor or Faber Castell pencils, but the lead is held quite firmly. I saw jaw markings on the lead after a few uses.

Verified Purchase
This F grade is an excellent writer's lead. It is smooth, dark and slightly oily. Like what the others have said, this lead has the darkness of a B with the wear of an H. This lead gives the writer a glimpse into what the Japanese leads are like such as in the Tombow Mono and Mitsubishi Hi-Uni wooden pencils.
