This pencil is so beautiful...

This pencil is so beautiful and elegant. I had never seen a mechanical pencil
with a removable cap like this before, which is the main reason why I ordered
one. I love how professional and sleek it looks, and the color is so pretty!
It took me a few minutes to figure this out, however. With the lid off, you
push the button on the end of the body of the pencil to advance the lead. If
you pull on the silver part on top of the lid, you will find the eraser. I
first thought it was odd that the eraser lifted with a springy action, and then
I discovered why: it is designed so that when the lid is posted on the body,
you can push on the eraser cap which applies pressure to the advance button on
the body, advancing the lead. Clever! I would definitely recommend getting
eraser refills to have handy, though. Even though the eraser is rather long and
can be adjusted to accommodate use, it is still a small-diameter eraser.
You won't be disappointed.
