Pentel? Sharp? Automatic Drafting Pencil, 0.9 mm, Yellow
Favorite Pencil By Far...
These pencils are definitely worth the price. Even though they are not the best looking writing utensils, their writing quality is superb. The lead never breaks and it advances automatically, so no excessive stopping what you are writing to manually advance the lead. I have a small collection of mechanical pencils and these are by far my favorite. Highly recommended.

A Professional Product at Disposable Prices
These pencils (Pentel Drafting Pencils) have had the same design for as long as I can remember - for good reason. From middle school, through high school and college to over 20 years as a professional tradesman (Millwright/Quality Assurance) these have been the only pencils that have simply worked every time. The only time they need replacing is when I lose it or when I dry it in the dryer (happens about once a year).

Pros: Comfortable Grip, Glides Smoothly, durable construction, subtle style
I first used the Pentel P205 at my first job out of college as an internal auditor. This pencil was amazing! The construction of the pencil makes it durable so there is no constant lead breakage. The handling did not cause my hand to become tired (after writing several hundred lines of tick marks)!
On a separate note, the Pentel P205 is a "smart" buy because it is also subtle on style. I've had several friends pick mine up by "accident" and used it as a reward for the students I've tutored over the years.
The Pentel P205: it's not just for drafing fans anymore! Kudos to a superior writing instrument!!

Addictive personalities BEWARE......
So determinedly MY choice of pencils, that I recommend it to large groups of people when I speak on topics ranging from econometric forecasting, to homeschooling, to bird watching, to speed reading. Of course I veer from the topic just to extoll its virtues and many think I'm nuts, but it has never failed me. I never give mine away, but my engineer/performing arts daughter steals mine everytime she sees one at my house. I have them everywhere!
