The main advantage of this pencil is that it will not tear a hole in your pocket like most others do. The point retracts into the bottom when you close it making the end blunt and dull. When extended the tip is locked in place by the clip, which here goes down lower when the button is depressed. This allows it to retract without suffering from the problem of other retractable pencils where they are easily pushed back leaving nothing to protect the lead from breaking. It's really the best of both worlds. The only problem with this is that when the tip is retracted the clip sticks out quite a lot which can over time cause it to get bent out of position.
The rest of the pencil is fairly standard. The eraser is small and gets used up quickly so you probably want to use a separate eraser whenever possible. The grip is unusual in that it is mainly metal with only thin rubber bits sticking through to provide a grip. This is almost as good as a fully rubber grip and is quite a bit more durable. The body of the pencil is light and thin. It can take a significant amount of damage but it's really best not to push it. The only reason I replaced this pencil (with another of the same make) is because I lost it. It lasted almost two years without substantial damage, which is a rarity for my pencils.Read more ›
I wouldn't be without one in my bag!
nice touches like the strurdy clip, and Auto retract of the precision nib (for protection) once the clip is pressed, make this well though out.
It also is easy to refill, and has built in rubber (again replaceable).
Well made, well designed and a pleasure to use.
The pencil itself is quite weighty compared to some of its counterparts but perfect for me, as the weight is centred well and allows for a great stability and control when in use.
I would say if you are wanting to do finer work the 0.5mm may be more appropriate as the 0.7mm produces quite a wide line, especially if your writing is particularly small!
0.3 - Rubbish. Stopped working after s while, gets leads stuck, stripped it three times, doesn't want to work.
0.5 - really good, no problems with leads, good mechanism
It is a very nice product and, not surprising at this price point, very good quality. It feels nice in the hand and well weighted, I also like the clip to retract the lead.
However, for people looking to boy this for a child it is a bit too heavy and so I would recommend a plastic version. Luckily my wife was quick to take this off my hands as she wanted it as soon as she saw it!
Lovely pencil which looks like it will last a long time.
