Welcome to dickblick
A 4 mm fixed sleeve protects the lead and makes the GraphGear 800 ideal for use with rulers and templates. It's guaranteed to scan just like a No. 2 pencil.
The metal grip is inlaid with soft, latex-free pads, and the barrel is perfectly balanced for more control when writing. The metal clip withstands repeated use, and the cap conceals and protects the eraser between uses.

Good price , good quality
according to price, it is really high quality, I liked it too much..
I love these drafting pencils
from Dallas, TX
I enjoy using drafting pencils, also called mechanical pencils, primarily for sketch drawing since I love having the consistent size for line work. Prefer to have pencils with a button on the side but finding the eraser under the cap was a nice surprise. Having the series of 4 feels like a minor accomplishment.
I really like these pencils and would buy them again.

I use the pencils in fine drawing.
from Washington, DC
This pencil was one of my only disappointing purchases from Blick. After opening the package, and trying to change the lead, this pencil fell apart and I was not able to fit it back together to use it. After about 30 minutes of fiddling with the pieces, I gave up and will need to throw it away. Disappointing and a waste of money and time! Consider buying a different mechanical pencil.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We apologize for the faulty pencil, and we're happy to take care of this for you. Please look for an email from one of our Customer Care Agents who will be following up to assist you.
Excellent for keeping with my sketchbook~
from San Antonio, TX
I was looking for a nice mechanical pencil with a larger lead to keep with my sketchbook and this fit the bill! I really like the feel of it with the grips and the thicker lead is working perfectly for sketching. I also love that the refill line has an option for other, softer leads and I will be giving those a try as well.

Aomg the Best Drafting Pencils available
from San Diego, CA
I create a lot of architectural and nautical plans and drawings, so I own dozens of mechanical pencils by various manufacturers. Over the years I have purchased three "sets" i.e 3mm, 5mm, 7mm & 9mm pencils made by Graphgear. Each generation has been better, and this latest one is the best. At first they had all metal grips which are uncomfortable to hold after a while. They then improved the grip to combined part metal part plastic which was more comfortable to hold, but the pencils were awkwardly balanced and had a not so well designed clip spring release which added weight and made use of the clips in pockets useless. This latest set, and again I purchased four pencils has reduced weight due to a plastic barrel and therefore better balance. The grip is very comfortable being part metal and part plastic, and the feed and release is simple with view moving parts. I recommend these pencils highly, the best made as far as I know. The only thing that could be improved upon is to have a turning gauge on the barrel to show the hardness of leads in the pencils, i.e. 2B, HB, etc.
