This is a very well-made, attractive pencil and I agree with what the other
reviewers have said. However, I was disappointed by how easily the pencil
becomes discolored. I collect mechanical pencils and other than my daily writers
I use them very gently one time and then add them to my collection.
I have used this pencil once and taken it out of the package three times in
total. Despite careful handling there are a couple of small marks on the cap
that I have been unable to remove. I have tried a variety of cleaning liquids
without success. Unfortunately, I am a little obsessive-compulsive when it comes
to writing instruments and the smallest flaws bother me.
This is a great pencil for all of the reasons the other reviewers have listed
but be very careful with the white version if smudges and marks on your writing
instruments bother you.
