Not good, 25 Jun 2013
I bought the pencil to help my son remember to use the correct pincer grip. It does achieve this and is comfortable to use, however the pencil is not very practical. The pencil leads are very expensive for what they are and wouldn't last long with daily use. I had to return the pencil because the part that holds the pencil lead split after first use. Therefore, it is not strong enough to hold the pencil lead after insertion because pressure is applied when screwing the two parts of the pencil together. It is also quite difficult to insert the pencil lead into the holder and requires an adult to do this. On the whole, the ergonomics of the pencil is good, but due to the other issues, I would not recommend this pencil.
