Size: 0.9 mmColor: Yellow Barrel
I must say I am a huge fan of this series of mechanical pencil. I first picked up the 0.7mm style and loved it, however, in an effort to expand my collection I tried out the 0.9mm. I was afraid the lines would be too bold or thick, but for my handwriting it isn't bad at all. The lead hardly ever breaks, which was a problem for me with the 0.7mm model (likely a result of my hard-writing). I treat this pencil with respect and keep it close to me so I won't loose it. The erasers on these are nothing to brag about. I generally keep a Pentel Hi-Poylmer block eraser on me to do the job (and it works great)! Small price to pay for such an exceptional mechanical pencil. I've read of people having these same pencils for decades, needing only to refill lead and eraser. I can expect to keep mine that long. The construction seems very durable. you can remove the metal clip if you'd like, and easily reattach if you need to. I've been using mine for a few months now. Finally the semester is over and I have time to write a review for this tool that has given so much to me. My only fear is Pentel will discontinue this product (I know what I want for Christmas)!

Size: 0.5 mmColor: Black Barrel Verified Purchase
I'll be honest: I haven't used a pencil for many years, and even a pen feels somewhat foreign in my hand....I'm a keyboard guy through and through, but recently, with my purchase of an Apple iPad Pro and "Pencil" I became somewhat enamored with the idea of writing by hand again. The Apple Pencil, however, despite its $99 price tag, is missing just one thing to make it perfect: it's perfectly round and likes to roll away - off of tables onto the floor. Once it even slid out of my computer bag and spent the night in the snow next to my car but survived.

I kept wondering: why isn't there a clip for the pencil - you know, the same metal clip that's on a mechanical pencil from my youth?
Well, after purchasing this Pentel Pencil, there is now! Now I can clip my Apple Pencil to its case, or in my shirt pocket. It no longer rolls away off the table!

Years ago, when I worked at Motorola, they had an amazing ad/poster with the caption "Daddy fought in the war" with an old WWII combat radio back to back with the MicroTAC cellphone....this "handing down" of the clip from Pentel Pencil to the Apple Pencil reminds me of that ad!

So I apologize in advance for not actually reviewing the Pentel Pencil, but it solved a different problem for me and is just as relevant.

Below is a photo of my Apple iPad Pro Pencil with the metal clip transferred from the Pentel Automatic Pencil.

I absolutely love these pencils! I own the Pentel versions in .3, .5, .7, and .9 and they all serve a very useful purpose. I'm a contractor and use the .9 for trim work where precise marking is a must. A regular carpenter pencil is to bulky. I am in total agreeance with a previous review that said these things are built tough. I keep one in my tool belt at all times and have never broke one yet. Kudos to a great product!

I first started using the P205 in 1972 and was impressed then at the quality, ease of use, and applicability for my professional and private life. This Pentel product has always been my favorite, so I was wary about replacing what I had lost. I am used to seeing quality suffer with each new issue of the same product--not so with Pentel. This is the same pencil I started with decades ago and will never change brands or models. The perfect product for me. This order was shipped from Amazon directly and, as usual, was here a few days later, packed perfectly, and the product was ready for use. I use this pencil to write textbooks as well as any other pencil needs. Highest recommendation for price, product, and supplier.

I always have one of these pencils in the side pocket of my jeans or a cargo short pocket . . . whenever it's time to write or draw up an idea, or mark wood, I am ready. These things are dependable and have been around for years. I use the 0.9mm pen most frequently as its lead is thicker and holds up better when called upon to mark wood for joinery. It is able to crowd into corners when replicating pattern templates. Buy these.
PS: Another bonus of the 0.9mm pencil, for me is, being colorblind, I find that the color of these pencils is quite visible (for my purposes) and I very rarely misplace them.

I really like these pencils, they are built like a tank and with the 0.9 lead I can be my normal heavy handed self. I cannot use 0.5's, constantly breaking the lead.

These pencils are absolutely top of the line. They write very well, and it feels like it was built like a tank. This isn't one of those flimsy mechanical pencils that you could snap with enough force. It's streamlined, looks great, writes with a sturdy press, and can take a beating. Definitely recommend.

These pencils have never let me down. I used to use the 0.5 mm version in school. I purchased this 0.9 mm lead version because I use these for woodworking projects. When I am marking the wood for cabinets and other detail oriented projects, these are a lot easier to use and are more accurate than the framing pencils. I used to use a 0.7 mm pencil for projects, but the lead would continually break if I pushed too hard on the wood. I have dropped these pencils several times on the concrete, and although the lead breaks, the pencil is robust and still functions as intended.
