The 2mm lead on this pencil is very cool. The size is just large enough to offer a solid line, but can still remain crisp even with extended writing. If you turn the pencil on its side a little, you can use the side of the thick lead to lay down soft shading. The pencil is quite convenient for a variety of uses. I love the sharp tip, although after writing for awhile, the shape of the tip does change and it becomes less sharp, though it remains pointed. For such a thick lead, I prefer to keep it sharp though so I had to get a separate sharpener.
- Attractive, elegant, sleek.
- Comfortable to hold and write/draw with for extended periods.
- Be careful not to break the lead if you overextend it. (This is the case with all lead holders though.)
- Requires a special sharpener (purchase separately).
Not being an artist, this pencil breaks even for me. I had to get a special sharpener for the lead to keep it sharp. The pros and cons break even. I certainly enjoy using it and it is a well-made lead holder. It's very comfortable to use, and it looks great. At $45.50USD, unless you're an artist, or really need a lead holder, there are likely less expensive options out there.
I received this pencil free of charge for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. All opinions here belong to me.
