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
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.
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.
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.
