Lighter in your hand
By pencil lover
from Dayton, VA
I bought 12 of these for gifts for my family. They like how this pencil feels in the hand---light weight. Now nobody has to "steal" mine off the table:)

Didn't get a chance to use the product. Put a silverpoint tip into it and put it in my shirt pocket. A few minutes later something snapped and shifted in my pocket. Took it out and the tip fell off. Turned it over and the rest of the insides fell out. Fortunately I found the silverpoint tip. Upon examination it became clear that, while it was sitting in my pocket doing nothing in particular, the plastic piece that fits into the tip broke. It was irreparable. I bought a replacement at Michaels while I figure out if I want to bother to return this one.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Light, works with staedtler leads
from Jersey City, NJ
I chose this one because unlike other lead holders, it does not have the metal 'grip' on the body, which I find tarnishes quickly and is uncomfortable for me. This holder is mostly plastic, so it's lighter than the staedtler lead holder that I've been using. It fits and works with the staedtler lead pointer, and with the staedtler leads I already have. I tossed the lead it came with because while sharpening, the lead kept breaking. They also apparently come in different colors; the image for the product is blue, but the one I received was yellow, which was cool because that's my current favorite color. Overall very solid and for an excellent price.
