I retract my last statement...

I retract my last statement because I would buy another Lamy [ABS] pen due to
its "durability". These pencils can take a beating— and the retractable tip
is genius. You can clear the lead by breaking off the lead tip via the cuts in
the cap. Remove the cap, put the lead in the hole— snaps off, flush. Also,
the rubber ring on the cap keeps the pen from sliding, firmly on a desk. Great
