The big deal is that...

The big deal is that this pencil will use up a whole stick of lead. I don't
think I'll ever find out if it does for two reasons. First, it has a fixed
sleeve point (doesn't retract into the body, which it looks like it should from
the pictures) which, though conical, stabs the cloth of a pocket (and possible
skin) making it awkward to carry around. Second the clip is weak and won't grab
the edge of a pocket well enough and it feels like it could break off easily. If
these are not problems for you, I can recommend its weight and grip, which are
excellent for a pencil. It feels very secure in my hand. I will leave it at my
desk and use it there, but I usually grab my pocket when I need to write, so it
is going to roll off to some dusty corner, abandoned and alone, just because I
cannot shove it in my pocket. Too bad.
