I won't go back to regular pencils
from Tulsa, OK
I usually prefer sketching with mechanical pencils, but the regular bic pencils didn't cut it for the final product. I saw that a lot of my favorite artists were using the draft/matic pencils, so I ordered the .5 and .3 with different lead hardnesses. I'm so happy with them! They are really well made and are very solid. The lead comes out in just the right amount so it doesn't break. I can draw much finer lines and textures than with traditional wooden pencils. They have a little window on the side that you can twist and change which lead you are using. I would recommend, and I plan to order more in the future.
Draftmatic .07 mechanical pencil

I use this pencil daily. It's bery sturdy and has an excellent knurled grip design. Greatproduct at a great value. Thanks guys!
Excellent mechanical pencil
This is probably the best mechanical pencil for the price. It is a great, traditional style well built pencil.
best mechanical pencil ever!
I have been using my .5mm daily for the past 18 years and needed a few .7 mm. This is the only pencil I use. They perform beautifully!
Love my Alvin Draft/Matic!
from Bakersfield, CA
I am an artist and illustrator and I like to use a variety of media and this is my favorite graphite tool. I prefer the 0.3mm pencil since it is awesome for very detailed work! it is a must have in my artist stockpile.

My new Favorite Pencil
I ordered the .7, and now Ive ordered the rest of them. I absolutely LOVE these mechanical pencils. Replaced my old Sakura127. They're balanced and just the right weight for my hands. The eraser ran out quickly for me but the end is big enough to wear i could stick a cap eraser on it and keep on sketching. Im looking forward to getting the other point sizes!!
