Rated 5 out of 5�by Sasha Best and most favorite mechanical pencil!
Personally I think these pencils don't deserve so many negative reviews, but then again everyone has their own opinion. I had one of these pencils years ago until it was stolen, and I loved it! I had bought them again and I love not only the colors, but the shape of the pencil as well, it makes it very comfortable to write with. The grip on it keeps my hand from slipping around while writing. The lead writes very smoothly and it only breaks if you press down too hard or push too much out. Not only is it sleek and stylish, it's comfortable and writes perfectly! I'm so happy I purchased these again.
I know this is a minor thing to add about the product, but I think it would be cool if they added a sort of golden-yellow (barrel) colored pencil to the pack :)

Rated 5 out of 5�by HSMom Great mechanical pencils
We love these pencils but I wish we could buy replacement erasers : (
I color coded my children's supplies for school and they love these because they write great and are easy to hold. I think they look nice too.

Rated 5 out of 5�by vector LOVE THIS PENCIL; B hardness; .7mm lead
I don't understand the negative ratings. I'm an artist - maybe that has something to do with our different experiences. My pencil is soft and dark, easy to erase, very comfortable to hold. I'm still on my first lead, it doesn't break, and the eraser is hardly worn down at all. The line is sensitive to pressure - it has a lovely "black". I'm giving these as presents to all my friends. The "B" leads are only available in the stores, and be sure you are using the .7 mm thickness. I'm giving mine a forever home.

The lead breaks very easily. Also the pencil itself has a lead tip guide that comes off and gets lost easily as well as the eraser cap. I will not be repurchasing this product again.
