Great pencil for drafting. Has a good clicker and lead locks well after each click. The lead goes back in smoothly too. I love the grip of the pencil.
Good mechanical pencils
from Santa Barbara
I like the way the Alvin mechanical pencils meet the paper. I've tried some other pencils and they tend to catch and carve into the paper. The Alvins move smoothly on the paper. They are very comfortable to hold as well.
Easy to use I have no complaints .your service was excellent

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.

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!
