  Solid all-metal body..., April 13, 2011
By mak...
Solid all-metal body & most parts (one exception, for good reason) are metal - either anodized aluminum or highly polished brass. Clean lines, clean threading. Smooth & solid click feed advance mechanism. The clip might look like a piece of cheap tin in the photos, but it is thick & strong. The knurling on the grip and extension knob is more squarish (less of a diamond) but still good for grip without abrasion.

One great thing about this versus other retractables (like the Pentel Graphgear 1000 or the Ohto Super Promeca) is that it retracts far enough to allow room for a reasonable amount of lead to remain extended from the guide, but be protected inside the body. The result is not having to constantly fuss with retracting lead before retracting the guide, then re-feeding lead after extending the guide again. Very useful overall.

My only gripe : I wish it was available in 0.7mm (my favored lead size!).
