Very happy and impressed...

Very happy and impressed with the Rotring 600 lead holder. Does the job it's
designed for and does it very well. there are lots of metal lead holders out
there, and i own a fair few, but this is possibly the nicest of my collection.
it's no nonsense straightforward approach, makes it a tool i reach for everyday.
it's fairly light weight, but feels solid and well balanced. the clutch holds
the lead in place, and does not allow for any spinning as some can do. the
knurled grip which appears rather rough in the photos ( which was the reason i
hesitated ordering it sooner) is in fact very comfortable to hold. not at all
harsh, and has a enough grip to prevent slippage without making the drawing
experience uncomfortable in any way. has a satin black finish and fits into a
standard rotary lead pointer.Will a lead holder of lesser price do the job as
well as this one does? absolutely, but if you want one that is solid, well
balanced, and just looks pretty darn cool, you might want to give the Rotring
600 a try.
