Size: 0.5 mm
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.

Although the GraphGear 1000 is labelled as a drafting pencil, I find it preferable for daily writing and note taking. If you write small and can manage to write with a soft touch, this pencil would make an excellent addition to you writing tools. Over the course of 3 years, I have purchased 7 of these pencils. Four were lost, two broke, and one is still works. Shockingly enough, I broke one of them after adding a picture to Amazon. These pencils are solid on the exterior, but have a few weak points.

Cons:
- Sticker on top of the cap labeling the lead size WILL come off.
- 0.3mm only comes in brown.
- Expensive.
- Plastic interior pieces (There's a brown piece that can fracture near the screw end)

I'm not the type to baby my possessions. So the cons listed may not be applicable to you.

Pros:
- Solid feel.
- Unique design.
- 0.3mm

As some have noted, there are different versions of this pencil.

Here's what I found to be different:
- The back cap is tighter fitting.
- The clip now uses a spring.
- The internal lead storage is slightly different (more plastic, less metal).

There aren't many alternatives when it comes to 0.3mm pencils but this is the best one in the consumer market.

I don't think these pencils are worth the price, but 0.3mm pencil demand not exactly booming. My preference for finer work in my penmanship is enough for me to look the other way. Beggars can't be choosers!

Great pencil for sketching on the go. I carry the pentel 1000 and a sketch book everywhere. The fact that it retracts is sweet! Very durable build. I did have an internal plastic part wear after a while, contacted Pentel through their site and they shipped a new part for free. Gave my first one to my son after using it for a year. I had to buy another one because other pencils weren't as portable.

BigBrother - See all my reviews

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.
