  This is my first Rotring..., April 16, 2011
By kyu...
This is my first Rotring pencil. Between me and my husband, we have a number of Rotring art pens and rapidographs, but this drafting pencil was a first.

Initially I was hesitant to make the purchase due to the price, but in looking at the retractable tip (by turning the screw near the clicker) and the solid construction, I decided to give it a shot.

Admittedly, the screw open mechanism takes a little getting used to. The clicker will not depress if the tip is retracted -- a nice safety mechanism. I need to remind myself to retract the tip when I put my pencil away.

I do a lot of work with colored lead and I've gone through numerous pencils that break (and subsequently waste) my lead. This pencil has done an excellent job thus far.

Is it worth the price? It's hard to say. I'm a stickler for quality in the tools I use regularly. I have a Lamy Scribble 0.7 pencil which I equally love, so I'm not going to say this is a pencil for everyone, but I do recommend it for drafting pencil aficionados!
