Use the pencil for life drawing session. It's nice cuz easy to keep sharpen. I like the fact that I can get 4b lead to fill it. I have several of them with different leads hb. 2b. 4b.

Great for drawing
from Bend, Oregon
My watercolor teacher had this on the supply list and I love it. I would recommend buying the lead sharpener as well. Can't beat the prices at Blick!

I am new to drawing so my review my opinion may not be of much value to professionals and experienced artists. I took my first class a month ago. I used Faber-Castell TK9400, lost it and decided to try Staedtler Mars holder. It is much lighter in weight and for that reason I prefer it. The blue part of this pen is made of plastic. If it withholds long use I will be very pleased with this pen. I would recommend it if you like a weight closer to a regular wood pen.

I had been drawing with graphite pencils for a long time but never had tried using a lead holder. Many people said that it gave you more control and was far superior, so I gave it a tried the Staedtler technico.I found it had many pro and cons.Pros:SturdyExtra ControlReusable Good qualityCons:Pain to refillMust buy another lead holder to have another grade of graphite unless one wants to change lead every 5 minutes Sharpening lead with pointer on the end will drop the graphite dust everywhere and still drop some after you empty it

I have been using the same lead holder for about 4 years and still functioning just as new! I had to buy 3 lead holders for 2H, HB, and 4B hardness leads, because switching out the leads everything I need to change the hardness was a hassle. So it will be a bit pricy. other than that, this product is perfect!
from Chicago, IL
So excited that I got the best finally. Awesome packaging has a color indicator in it to swap out for the shiny one that comes on the pencil holders already. No guessing which lead is in each pen. So don't throw out the packaging. Also, I find it will save me from myself because it's such sturdy packaging. Can't wait to go to town on these. Also, it doesn't take long at all to wear down the sides of the lead for shading but that doesn't mean the leads are wimpy.

German design and built for the perfect pencil. Gnarling at the grip end is so beautiful it make a grown man cry.
