This is a great pencil....

This is a great pencil. It has a "bottom-heavy" feel which lessens the force
needed to apply the pencil to the paper. The metal bottom half of the pencil
(knurled) grip is amazing, it's my favorite feature. The upper part is plastic
made, and you can definitely feel that the bottom portion outweights the top
portion by a lot.
Like someone else said, when the pencil is locked and the "nib" in retracted
,the pencil has "loose feel" due to the pipe shift mechanism. But when its
loaded and ready to go, it has a TIGHT feel.
It's a great concept, and great way to protect the nib and allow it in your
pocket. It writes great, and because of the lower weight, you don't have to
apply that much pressure. It's really cool looking too, I purchased the one in
I only give it 4 stars because if the upper body where made from a metal, and
more tight feeling, it would be perfect.
