This is a sharp, tough, and pretty little pencil. After nearly a full year of
continuous daily use, my first 600 finally died last week when the threaded area
conjoining the knurled component and the pencil body was shorn.
But I'm going to buy another.
My work is tough on all my tools and this one tool has been a continuously
abused favorite. This pencil has been in and out of all of my pockets as I
climb, crouch, crawl all over the place, sketching, making notes, marking for
exact cuts on various material surfaces. All day, every day. It speaks well of
Rotring's construction and product durability that the pencil sustained roughly
2500 hours of my abuse before just giving out.
I've dropped this non-retracting from model on its tip and bent everything back
into place numerous times. I've used it creatively, for tasks it both was and
wasn't designed to do. Gouging, prying, you get the idea. Buy two.
