  • I love this pencil

    I love this pencil. I've been using it for years. Initially I purchased about 12 different mechanical pencils to see which I preferred. The Technician II 0.5 mm was the winner. I now buy a box at a time every few years (because I lose them, not because they wear out). I like that it is not too fat. I like the rubber grip. I love the twist out/in eraser. No need to yank off the top and get lead flying all over to expose the eraser. And the eraser is quite long down inside so it lasts a long time. It's replaceable if you run out, but I hardly ever run our. I prefer the thinner line of the 0.5 mm lead, but there is a 0.7 mm version for those who like their lines a little wider. And they are quite inexpensive for the high quality, so I don't have to worry too much if I lose one. They come out to less than about $2 each. The chamber easily holds half a dozen or so leads ~2" long. That lasts quite a while, but of course, you can add more any time you like. Did I say that I love this pencil?

  • Excellent Mechanical Pencil

    This Mechanical Pencil is very similar to the Sanford Pro-Touch II pencil before Sanford became PaperMate. I loved the Pro-Touch II so much I was happy to find this version by Papermate. The twist eraser is a genius idea and should have been adopted by more companies for their mechanical pencils. The weight is nice and well balanced in your hand. I would highly recommend anyone who loved the Pro-Touch II series of pencils from Sanford to get this model since they can use the same eraser refills. Thank you Overstock for having this. I loved these pencils so much I bought several.

  • Best ever

    Of all of the mechanical pencils I have ever used this is the best. Even better than much more expensive pencils. The eraser twists out long and lean with no cap in the way. The shaft at the lead end is perfectly long to fit against a parrallel bar. Lead replacement is easy and it holds plenty of back up leads that feed in easily. The rubber grip is comfortable without being to big. Papermate no longer seems to make this pencil and there is nothing on the market that has all of these features in one pencil. It's hard to believe that a person could be so passionate about a pencil but there is nothing else like it and believe me i have searched

  • Amazing pencils

    I love these pencils - it's been the only pencil I enjoy using for years, and they've been getting harder and harder to find. I never expected to find them here (I ended up here through a Google search for this pencil), but this price is fantastic. I was looking for them because I'm planning to return to school for a PhD, and I know I'll be doing lots of writing. Now I just need to make sure I can find a lifetime supply of erasers.
