    One of the best out there

    Best pencil ever, worth your 20 bucks. Mine broke between the grip but it still deserves 5 stars. Would buy again

    Best mechanical pencil ever made.

    I am the proud owner of 9 of these babies! That should tell you how much I love them. In my opinion they are well worth the money, a very popular pen review site called it the 'king of draughting pencils' and I agree. Very sturdily built, no wiggle at all like you'd usually find in a retracting tip pencil, the grip is absolutely awesome... Only improvement I can think of is to make the rubber nubs rigid so they don't depress when you grip the pencil. A quick diy fix is to wrap a piece of paper around the stem and slide the grip over it, this keeps the nubs rigid and stops your skin from rubbing painfully against the metal part of the grip. Other than that little quibble, this is a five star product all around!

    top of the heap

    i prefer to use pencil when writing - using the yellow 0.9mm with 2B soft lead is IMO, the feel and effect I have sought since I learned to write. I can't imagine any improvement so please produce this mech pencil forever.

    So very durable

    This is by far the most satisfying mechanical drafting pencil i have ever used. The audible click when you eject the tip makes it feel even more sturdy. The flashy machined aluminum grip is comfortable and adds to the overall attractiveness of the utensil. I was deeply disappointed when i had lost my long trusted Graphgear 1000.
