This pencil is absolutely...
, February 6, 2010
This pencil is absolutely *beautiful*. I was in the market for a really nice
pencil to use in my art/hobby/business, but couldn't find anything local that
felt right. After looking online, I found the Regulator and fell in love.
This pencil is the heaviest I've found (by almost double the weight of most),
which I love, is super sleek and all-metal, and has more than the normal
features offered by the majority of mechanical pencils. The end/clicker has a
lead identifier, which is somewhat common, but the main kicker is the
adjustability - you can twist the top of the pencil to control how much lead is
put out with each click. Awesome!
Love at first sight with this one, but the other features it offers make it
wonderful. The only thing I'd change is to have a retractable point (the one on
it is rather sharp), but it's not a make-or-break feature. It feels great in my
hand (thanks to the weight) and not too slippery, which can sometimes be a
hazard with metal-grip pencils. For everything it offers, the price is more than
I even took this thing into work and everyone adored it - I work at an art
supply that carries a huge selection of pencils, but nothing like this. Looks
great, feels great, is great. Recommend 100%.
