I bought this just to have in my collection of 0.4mm pencils. I didn't expect to
be able to use it for my main application which is technical design note writing
and math, because it is too front heavy and heavy in general, and the grip,
despite the rubber bumpers, is too abrasive for my comfort. These are personal
taste aspects rather than criticisms of its quality though, so I still give it 5
stars. The pencil is simply beautiful, extremely well built, and a great
show-off piece to lay on the table at a meeting. It is also a good field pencil
since it retracts and so protects the tip. Finally, it also has Pentel's classic
very short advance per click mechanism that I like.
