4.0 out of 5 stars Unbearable Lightness, 2 Aug 2014
This review is from: Faber-Castell Grip 2011 07 Mechanical Pencil - Silver (Office Product)
I write this review from a position of ever-increasing authority, having used pencils - and, indeed, mechanical pencils - for the vast majority of my life and continuing to do so. I have similar qualifying status with using paper, pens, and a keyboard...

Humour aside, this pencil is pleasant to hold and very light in the hand. It has, so far, been reliable, and I see no reason to doubt its longevity compared to other pencils in its category.

All of that said, for me, it lacks the aspect of reassuring weight and tactility. I like to feel that the physical action of my writing or drawing is balanced by the implement in hand. The plastic chassis is light and provides nothing in which to luxuriate. To my taste, the Pentel Graphgear pencils are probably the closest thing to perfection in their class.

For these reasons I dock it a star but no more - the lightness would suit many people, and the product itself is perfectly good.
