This is my second Grafton Mechanical pencil and I like them, just wish the tip where the lead comes out would fully retract into the body of the pencil to decrease the chance of it breaking. Also wish the grip was a bit better.
I recently purchased this pencil in silver to go with my pen and I love it. I officially handed my Pentel Graph Gear 1000 off to my son and this is now my everyday pencil. If I have one complaint, it's that there is no cap over the eraser. The sleek metal body just somehow seems unfinished with a rubber eraser at the top. I blame myself for not paying enough attention. The first photo on the website is the black pencil, and the white eraser blends into the white background.
Nice addition to my collection just wish it had a tad more grip.
Highly recommended! I purchased two pens and a mechanical pencil. The weight and balance is perfect. The fit and finish is excellent. The performance is exactly what you would expect from a premium instrument. These products satisfy my engineer’s mindset precisely: simple, elegant, and functional. — Mike
I truly enjoy the feel and design of this pencil. I am sketching all the time so I reach for this pencil constantly. It's a wonderful complement to the pen.
