As Always Blick products are great!

Comments about Pentel Graph Gear 1000 Pencils:
Using the mechanical pencils and extenders make a difference in my work, not waste. The packaging for the products is unique in the fact that you can identify the product, it displays the size of lead. So far, I can't find anything "not so great" about these products. I am so glad I purchased them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

HOW to Use the ERASER
from Columbia County, NY
I've found the eraser lasts quite a long time AND is easy to adjust if you know how. As it wears down, you will have to keep pushing it up through the small metal holder that it sits in. To do this, USE the metal tip of the pencil. It will need to be pushed into the writing position. Slide it into the narrow slot in the holder, et voila! Just make sure that if you have back up leads inside the pencil that you keep a finger over them so they do not fall out.LOVE using this pencil and better for the environment to not be constantly throwing out pens.
My orders come immedialy and so i even bought my sister who is a artist a gift card and see loved it
The Cadillac of Pencils
from Annapolis, MD
I love how the pencil tip recoils in when you press the clip in. Saves the tip from damage and saves the graphite.
from Brookville, Ohio
I've had one of these drafting pencils for ten years and it's still working like the day I bought it. I use the 0.3 size and it allows me to creat with a ridiculous amount of detail. I love that the whole body is metal, and that the tip retracts completely. Before I got mine, I destroyed several other drafting pencils(sat on, run over by a car, stepped on, etc.). The Pentel Graph 1000 are worth the money, for sure. I recomend them to everyone I meet and even convinced my husband to try one. Definetly a must-have for my artwork.
Best mechanical pencil I've tried
from San Francisco ca
I bought this pencil on a recommendation of another artist. This is a very well made pencil, avoids the need for sharpening and has great hand feel to boot. I use .7 size, less breakage than the thinner version.
exactly as promised

It is just what I needed and I would recommend Blick if possible.
Graph Gear 1000 Saves The Day
I use mechanical and technical tools in graphic design everyday, but had yet to find a pencil with the smooth handling and precision the Graph Gear gives. I'm even able to load it with my extremely fagile leads such as colored graphites, with less worry of them snapping or going through a whole tube of lead due to breakage. My only complaint is the eraser. When you're out of eraser you have to dig the last little bit out of the top in order to replace the lead inside the barrel. Not a horrible thing, but aggravating none the less.
would buy again
from Cape Coral, FL.
Really like the feel of these pencils. I purchased the 0.3 and 0.5. I like the color coding and also the window in the lower barrel that displays the lead hardness I am using. I have started doing work that calls for a lot of detail, and these pencils help me to achieve that detail
