Like anything of quality, this pencil was made for those people who are willing to go a little above and beyond for superior writing apparatuses. The box says Non-Refillable, but human society is currently constructing a 167 story building somewhere in the Middle East (Dubai?), so I think anyone of average intelligence should be able to find a way around this Non-Refillable option.

To Refill: Remove the pink eraser from top of the pencil. Extract the inner workings of this modern piece of technology, namely the steel spring and embedded black plastic stopper. Affix your .07mm lead to the bottom of the black plastic stopper, it should fit snuggly in place and turn the stopper until the entire piece of lead is within the steel spring. Replace the spring and push firmly back into place. I used a small paper clip for this action. And voila! Your Non-Refillable pencil is now refilled

Now shame on tree hugging hippies who are never willing to go the extra mile to look good and be comfortable while trying to save the environment!

Suffice to say, that when I misplace my sharpwritter I go to great lengths to try finding it back. When I don't find it, my day becomes miserable. I love it. It writes well - just like a pencil. Unlike a pencil it erases perfectly. And unlike any other (expensive or not) mechanical pencil I have used, the lead doesn't break. That is the hidden beauty of this product - the control you have on the length of the lead coming out of the pencil. I have become good @ it to pull it out enough to be able to write a long time, but not so much as to break the lead. I have, however, seen other people borrowing it from me, pulling the lead too long and breaking it. In addition to the deft use, I believe the lead of sharpwritter is stronger than that of the other products - another reason for it not breaking that often (or never in my case).

I bought a batch of these at an office supply store a few years back and loved them. I kept losing my high-end mechanical pencils, so I started buying cheap ones that I wasn't worried about losing. I tried many brands, and these are the best disposable pencils I have found. The erasers don't dry out or leave smudges like some other low-end pencils. To advance the lead, you twist the bezel at the bottom, instead of clicking the top like some disposable mechanical pencils.

My gripe is this: about 75% of the pencils in the Amazon order (I bought 60 pencils) have very hard-to-twist bezels. But the rest of them are fine, so I think the manufacturing quality has gone down.

Sometimes I think 20 years and counting of academia has done little other than making me persnickety about office supplies, but I can live with that.

These are the only pencils I use; end of story. As others have stated, the thing that makes these pencils stand out is that they are designed to absorb shock. While many people may not have a problem with typical mechanical pencils (to be honest I didn't realize I had a problem until I started using these..), for anyone that pushes hard when they write and is tired of tiny pieces of lead flying into their eyes, the Sharpwriter is for you.

They're not meant to be refilled like a lot of other mechanical pencils, but that really isn't an issue since A)they last a long time since the lead seldom breaks, and B)they're cheaper than most mechanical pencils, and C)most of us lose our pencils before their first refill anyway.

The "bounce" you feel from the shock absorber may take you a little time to get used to (...5 seconds?) but once you do, there's no going back. Easy to find in office supply stores, but if you don't have one of those near you they can be kind of tough to find in grocery stores and pharmacies so I recommend just getting them here on Amazon. The price here is also always lower than in any stores I've seen them in anyway.

This is my favorite cheap pencil. The product page description is sparse - I've just received my order, so with package in hand, here are the details.
This pencil comes in a box of 12, with a lead diameter of 0.7 mm. Although it's non-refillable, the lead lasts a long time. It has a twist tip lead advance, and a cushion point which adjusts to writing pressure. The red eraser makes a smeary mess; I replace it with the white type of eraser.
Why go to the trouble for such a cheap pencil? This slim, light pencil is very comfortable to use, I like the twist-tip feed, and the cushion point REALLY WORKS. I never break the lead in this work-horse.

I am aware that posting a comment about cheap plastic pencils could seem weird, but I have used those consistently for more than 10 years.
Since the graphite is mounted on a spring, it doesn't break, even when you write like a maniac.
I love those. I hope they'll never stop making them.

I've been using the Paper Mate Sharpwriter Non-refillable Mechanical Pencil for many years. It's the only one I use. I hate regular wood pencils and I don't like those expensive refillable pencils either. I also don't like any mechanical pencil where you click the eraser part to bring out more 'lead'. For example, I tried one by BIC with the clicky eraser and I hated it including how it felt in my hand. I like the twist mechanism of the Paper Mate Sharpwriter the best. Twist it in for travel and twist it back out again for use. Perfect. I also like this pencil because it's not heavy and the outside is rounded and smooth which doesn't hurt my fingers.

I don't abuse things I own, so I never have trouble with my pencils breaking on the inside. I have nothing bad to say about this pencil, it's great just the way it is. It's affordable, easy to use, and as with any mechanical pencil, it's always sharp. I love having a pencil that is always ready to use and this one is better than all others I have tried.
