Great pencil for drawing
Really nice for drawing for a watercolor painting. It's not real heavy and sits nicely in my hand so I have a lot of control and can do a light drawing.
Excellent Durable Pencil
By Prospective Artist

I bought the Mephisto after looking into several different pencils and I am very happy with it. I have been using it for all my sketch work and it has gone through several months of intensive use and still works fine. The only sign of wear is the writing being worn off. This pencil is definitely worth the price as it will most likely outlast any cheap mechanical pencils and normal lead pencils you buy. I also recommend buying extra lead and erasers when you buy this pencil as you will go through the initial supply relatively quickly.

I think that this pencil is well balanced in my hand and is comfortable to hold. It is also really nice that there are replacement erasers available since they usually don't last as long as the pencil.
Pencil is excellent

This is a nice sturdy mechanical pencil that delivers a clean consistent line. The eraser works very well, too.

I was looking for a new mechanical pencil with better weight and balance than the Pentel Graph Gear 500 pencil I've been using for over a year. While it may seem trivial to worry about weight for something as small as a pencil, when precise motions are necessary, a little weight has a lot of impact. Not only is the Mephisto lighter, it also sits more comfortably in your hand. The rubber grip is a very nice feature (as opposed to the Graph Gear 500' textured metal end). Another great thing about this pencil is the long eraser provided that you can gradually twist out. The Graph Gear 500 simply comes with this dainty little eraser that wears away quickly. While it's a great pencil, a major hang up is the price. Sure you can refill the lead and eraser without any issue, so it's not like the Mephisto has a limited lifespan. But spending this much on something as easy to lose as a pencil is a rather grating lost. Just food for thought. Overall a very stylish and functional pencil that I highly recommend.

Bought the pencils for drawing and find they work quite well.
Great pencil, but....
from West Chester, PA
I had been using a pencil similar to this for about 20 years. They don't make the pencil anymore, so I have been looking for a replacement. I looked on Amazon and found this one. I was surprised by the price, but purchased it anyway. When I received the pencil, I was very pleased with the way it felt in my had. Very comfortable. I got the .7 lead and it writes very nicely, very smooth. I love the twist eraser and feel all mechanical pencils should be design with a long twist eraser. It lasts much longer that the ones on the market today. The only complaint I have is that the metal ring under the eraser barrel and above the pocket clip keeps sliding off. Will need to call DB about this.

What a great mechanical pencil
By Marcia the CPA
from Denver CO
As a CPA I need a great pencil that will hold up to excessive use. This mechanical pencil fits the bill especially with the .7mm size lead. Lead doesn't break, the pencil has substantial weight but isn't tiring to write with over an extended period of time and the grip is rubberized and has a great soft touch.
