I haven't started using these three new ones, but they look just as high-quality as my old one. They have joined my daily go-along drawing kit, and I am sure they will too last for a long time. By "a long time," conservatively I would say at least 3 - 5 years.
Some might question, "These are just mechanical pencils. What's the big deal." Well, image these scenarios: When you want to jot down a hard-catch inspiration, the lead takes forever to come out; when you are in mid of drafting and accidentally drop the pencil, you have to spend 5 minutes on fixing the broken lead stuck in the pencil; when you want to create different line weights on your pencil drawing, all you have is a 0.5 mm pencil so you have to trace the same line over and over with immense pressure until the paper is poked through; when you want to quickly erase a small detail, the eraser on the back of your pencil smudges the pencil mark and leaves a bigger mess on the drawing; when you drawing a line along a ruler, perhaps it's due to the angle that you hold your pencil too acute, the lead breaks half way through the line and leaves a node on your smooth line; when you have only used the pencil for a couple of months, the plastic body of the pencil already looks so scratched and old.
Maybe none of these scenarios seems intolerable, but if you work at a high-pressure environment, where efficiency is the highly valued, and that you cherish your drawing dearly and want to complete it perfectionistically, you will understand how frustrating those scenarios can be.
There are many ways a mechanical pencil can fail the seemingly basic tasks, especially with the impact of time. Excellence, which often seems to be unachievable, is simply the accumulated result of fulfilling every requirement satisfyingly, plus some efforts that surpass basic expectations.
These pencils though are a bit pricey, but for people who draw/draft frequently, they are the best aides that will always complete tasks perfectly and with no doubt a worthwhile investment for the education/career.
As other reviewers have noted, this is (wrongly) a picture of a 05mm, 07mm and a 09mm pencil and not the 03/05/07 one advertised.
Now about alvin pencils:
Very Durable and Solid construction.
I have never had problems with the knurled grip and I find it comfortable.
Lead dispensing is very good.
Very good value for money.
The sleeve of the pencil is fixed. So it can poke holes in your clothes and more importantly accidental drops can really destroy the pencil.
The plastic cover on the upper body seems cheap and the Alvin logo wears off easily.
In its price-range these drafting pencils are really good buys are highly recommended.
