The retracting tip is great, so no holes in pockets.

I have chosen this sharp pencil after a vigilantly careful 3-4 hour session in a department store.
I went into several stores and compared all the mechanical pencils they had at that time.
I took 10+ pencils for a ride (CDT, Cross, Faber Castell, Mitsubishi Kuru Toga, Ohto Promecha, Parker, Pelikan, Pilot, Pentel Graph Limited 1000, Rotring, Staedtler 885, Zebra Tect 2way etc. ).

For whatever reasons drawing with the Graphgear 1000 just feels right the very moment you take this pen into your hand.

When I made my decision I decided for the feature I REALLY need for a long term relationship. ;-)

While the "obvious" feature would certainly include the visual design you will be surprised to find out how much more there is to it, as I will elaborate below.

Hard factors:

1) Heavy usage of hand and/or rheumatoid arthritis:

If you or a good friend happen to play guitar daily for many hours and take notes at the same time or are unfortunate enough to already have rheumatoid arthritis in your hands, then this is "The pencil you don't want to leave the house without". I am not talking about the reliability itself but about how comfortable it is to use. This pen allows you to do more with much less effort !!

2) You can hide the sharp and sensitive penfront inside the pen.
While this may not be an obvious advantage, consider that you may accidently drop it once during its lifecycle.

The fact that the pens tip is hidden on the inside does not only protect your investment itself it also somewhat lessens the likelyhood of an actual damage to your other inventory, your expensive new shirt - or worse an injury to a family members eye (kids) etc.

These things are great. A bit expensive for a pencil but worth it. The thickness of the pencil is just right, and the spring loaded retractable clip is great. The tip doesn't wiggle around like a lot of drafting pencils with retractable tips.

The pencil itself is built really well too. The plastic parts are all high quality and the metal parts fit together perfectly. When you shake it all you hear is the lead moving around, there's no parts rattling at all unless the tip is retracted. Very tight construction.

Also unlike other drafting pencils this one actually has a decent sized eraser. I still carry around a block eraser but this one is actually big enough I don't hesitate to use it like I do with my other ones.

The only problem I have with it is there was no metal pin stuck in the eraser to clean out the tip but I haven't had any lead break yet so it might not need it.

All in all, these things are a pleasure to use.

The title pretty much says it all. I have been buying mechanical pencils since I was 12 years old (1977) and this is the best one I have ever found. I bought ten of them and gave two to my ex-wife (an accountant for a school) and she agrees. Even though it's quite expensive, it's worth every cent. Heavy in your hand (most are too light), nicely textured barrel for excellent grip, feeds beautifully with a tip that retracts so it doesn't jab through your pocket.

And if you can get an ex-wife on board... need I say more?

Pick your favorite size (mine is .7 with the harder "leads" - it writes as sharp as an average .5 but without breaking as much).

Only downside: same lame, tiny eraser you usually get with these. Why can't anyone make a good Dixon Ticonderoga Wood-Cased #2 Pencil-type eraser on a mechanical?

I have lots of mechnical pencils and for the price this is the best one. My top three are the Rotring 600, Faber-Castel Vario and of course the Pentel 1000. The 1000 has the features you would expect on a good automatic pencil including the HB, F, M, 2H, 4H,2B,B (controls the softness) and a feature not on those other two: You press the clip and it retracts the last part of the metal barrel that sticks out and contains the lead. Without that, pencils such as the Rotring 600 and Vario can be dangerous weapons and cut through your shirt pocket or break. The 1000 pencil retracts so you can carry it arround in your pockets without it cutting through it. The only feature I wish it had was a moving eraser like the Vario. I have a heavy hand apparently and I am constantly breaking the leads of many other automatic pencils even when I try to write softly but not with the 1000 (.7). Also I like the grip of the rough metal surface which is pleasant and provides precise control over your writing. The silver and blue metal surface looks very nice. You would pay about 3 times more for a Cross mechanical and in my opinion an inferior product to the Pentel Graphgear.

The 1000 has the features you would expect on a good automatic pencil including the HB, F, M, 2H, 4H,2B,B (reminds you what is the softness of your lead if you set it) and a feature not on those other two: You press the clip and it retracts the last part of the metal barrel that sticks out and contains the lead.

I also have a .9 version so you see I like this pencil! Also I like the grip of the rough metal surface which is pleasant and provides precise control over your writing.
