  I don't use pencils often,..., August 5, 2011
I don't use pencils often, but when I do it is a Pentel Twist Erase III 0.5. I've stood by this brand of pencil for about 5 years, and have yet to be disappointed. However, during my first order from JetPens, I decided to try out a pencil from one of my all-time favorite manufacturers: Pilot.

The pencil feels nice in my hand. The shaker mechanism adds a bit of weight to the pencil (something that the Pentel always had over most mechanical pencils).

The face of the clip looks a bit plain (I'm accustom to such wide clips offering a home for the label), but definitely tolerable. When I write with a pencil, I am prepared to make multiple mistakes and employ the eraser to rectify those mistakes. In that sense, I would prefer a larger eraser that isn't capped, but it certainly isn't a deal-breaker for me.

Post-purchase, I had wished I'd selected the pink-bodied version. Upon arrival, I'm ecstatic that I selected the white body- it's beautiful!

I'm not completely convinced this pencil will replace my trusty Pentel, but the Pentel will certainly have to learn to share the spotlight.
