I received mine today...
, January 22, 2012
I received mine today and I had read helpful comments before I put the order.
It looks like new but when I examine it closely after taking it out the box, I
see some abrasion signs already on the body and the area under the clip. They
are not very noticeable though. I then recalled the pen was out of its position
when I open the box and the lead had been advanced 1cm so it could not be fitted
in the sponge socket.
I don't know if it is a returned one or just got careless packaging before
shipping. For any reasons if you want something durable, my over ten years
Rotring 600 will be a good example.
The lead is 2mm but shorter than Staedtler's Mars carbon in length.
