Pilot Delful Double Knock Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Black & Green - PILOT HDF-50R-BG

The perfect mechanical pencil for me!

PROS
-I love the visual style of the mechanical pencil.
-Writes precisely and smoothly. The tip doesn't wobble and holds the lead well.
-I love the retractable tip! This helps protect the tip of the pencil and also protects my pocket from getting holes in it.
-The weight/heft is perfect!
-The grip is a firm one which I prefer. The thickness is just right.
-The shaker advance system for the lead works great.

CONS
-Hard to find this pencil.

Additional note:
I liked this mechanical pencil so much, I picked up a second one for at home and am sending one to each of my 4 nieces and 2 nephews.

Good pen!

PROS
-I love the color! It's a perfect blend of blue and black.
-Produces a very fine line and allows for precise writing and drawing.
-The ink dries quickly and does not smudge.

CONS
-The pen build quality feels cheap.
-The pen is too thin. Fatigue may be a problem.
-The pen is a bit "scratchy" when you try to write with it. This is especially noticeable when you write on a single sheet of paper over a hard surface. If you are writing in a notebook or something that has several layers of paper beneath it, the scratchy feeling is not noticeable.
-Pricey

Very good pen!

PROS
-Writes smoothly.
-Very fine line despite being listed as 0.7 mm.
-The visual style of the pen.
-Price is right.
-The feel of the pen is nice and comfortable. It is not too thin and has a decent "heft" to it. Fatigue after long term use shouldn't be a problem.

CONS
-The ink does smudge.
-The color of the ink is a bit too bright.
-Even though the pen does write smoothly, it is not as smooth as the JetStream 0.7 mm Basic Series that I also ordered.
