I liked this pencil much better than I was expecting. I bought it because I
wanted a 0.9 mm pencil at my desk for the times that a thick line is needed. I
did not expect to use it much. But this pencil is very comfortable to hold, well
balanced, and solidly built. Not bad for $2.50. The body has a rubberized
texture that is very easy on the fingers. I find myself using it regularly for
quick notes and the like. The size of this pencil is essentially the same as a
traditional wooden pencil.
This is an excellent pocket pen. It feels sturdy and has some weight to it like
a quality full-size pen. The sliding mechanism that extends the pen and exposes
the tip works smoothly and can be operated with one hand when the situation
calls for it. It uses Zebra's F type refills which are readily available in many
stores. The ink is not as good as Zebra's Surari emulsion ink, but still better
than your average ballpoint pen ink.
