In response to the review...

In response to the review by war, I'm sorry if you (or any other readers) got
the impression that I do not own the product. I had purchased and used the
pencil before I made the review.
I meant that I would have preferred the product be refillable in the same manner
as most pre-loaded mechanical pencils are refilled, as in, not by pushing a
piece of lead through the writing tip with the clicker held down, but through
the non-writing end. The non-writing end of the pencil is actually closed off by
the attachment of a plastic piece which holds the pencil in place within the pen
I could understand why this pencil has such a limitation, since there is so
little room to spare inside the pen body as it is. I am otherwise delighted to
have this product available to me. I've been waiting for something like this for
a long time. If it makes everyone happy, I've given the product 4 stars this
war is correct; it is filled with 3 leads. The leads feel harder than HB, which
makes sense, since a softer lead with more graphite and less clay runs out more
quickly. It creates a lighter line, but the line does not smudge as easily.
