Comments about Pentel Graph Gear 500 Pencil:
I love these mechanical pencils. The only thing I don't like about them is that if the eraser cap is lost, then you're out of luck for easily using the eraser because if you try to click the eraser to extend the graphite, you will undoubtedly push the eraser into the end of the pencil. If that were fixed, I would definitely give this a five star rating.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Used for fine details, thin sketches. Wish it could come with more lead.
Great product by a great store
Amazing delivery, amazing product amazing Block store.
I love it!
The pencil is well balanced-not too light or heavy and feels good in my hand. The lead is very smooth on surfaces. I love writing with it.
Great balance and strudy tip
The pencil is very well balanced without being too heavy. The metal grip does start to hurt when you're using it for long periods of time, but it looks really nice. The jacket for the lead is fixed, that's a positive in my book because there's no movement when you're using the pencil. It might poke you if you're not careful when traveling with it. I don't do technical drawings, but I do use the pencil for long periods of time writing and drawing. I don't think I would want to have a all metal body pencil for what I do, the weight would get uncomfortable. I love the leads that come with these pencils, they are surprisingly smoother than the Bic ones I've used all of my life. I think the combination of the plastic body with the fixed metal tip is perfect.
I love how heavy it feels, very well made
from Grinnell. Iowa
I use for sketching for wood carvings when I need a fine detail line and it does a great job I have other 0.3 pencils but they don't have the feel or the great working ability that the graph gear has I can find no fans with this pencil in fact I like so well I purchased 4 just to have spares on hand
fantastic thin lines
For sketching when I need fine detail lines Very well built could not be improved How can you improve the best I have been unable to list any kind of complaint or dislike of this pencil

great to have
from west saint paul, MN
I love to 500 for my drawing. I have used mechanical pencils but this one is the best because of its heaver weight.
My favorite pencil
I'm not an artist but I use this pencil every day. I have smaller handwriting and like the precise way this pencil writes. The lead also does not break easily.This is actually my second one to purchase.
