GREAT Writing Instrument
Bought one of these years ago and have used nothing else since. Use both at work and at home. A Great value.

I never thought I'd write a review of a pencil. But this one is great!
If you know how a good knife "balances", well, this thing has great balance. It also has a wonderful rubber grip.
It's actually a pleasure to hold this thing in your hand.
And it looks good.

The best pencil ever
I started using this pencil back in fifth grade and never looked back. I'm now a freshman in college, and I've only had three of these over the past seven years, they last that long (which helps justify the price).
In terms of actually writing with this pencil, nothing compares. I don't think I could ever use a different pencil. At first it looks a bit thick, but the thickness and the weight of the pencil makes writing much easier.
I will say one thing, though (and this agrees with what other reviewers have said). It is prone to being stolen. A classmate once tried to steal it straight off my desk when she thought I wasn't looking.
But overall it's a great pencil, it feels great while writing and it will last you forever (I only had to get new ones because mine were lost or stolen).

I've had three of these over the past five years or so. People keep stealing them. I just had my last one stolen today and I'm really annoyed about it. We'd been together for over two years. It's been so long since I've had to shop for pencils and I thought this pencil had been discontinued, so I was actually on this site to glumly search for a similar kind. I'm overjoyed to find that there are more.
