    Best Mass Produced Pencil EVER!

    This pencil is absolutely amazing. I was lucky enough to snag a couple before it was discontinued, and I enjoy writing with it every day. The fit and feel is a wonder of industrial design, and because form follows function, it looks great too.

    The really killer app here is that the sliding sleeve actually slides back as you write, reducing the amount of "clicking" necessary while you are rapidly taking notes in lecture or during films or whatnot. It also means that the lead is much less likely to snap off when you look at it wrong. The fact that the sleeve completely retracts means that it won't snag on fabric while riding in a pocket.

    Pentel PLEASE, I'm begging you, bring back the glorious PS535!
