Pentel Twist Erase EXPRESS Automatic Pencil, Yellow Barrel
Pentel first introduced 'automatic pencils' in 1963, beginning a long tradition of developing some of the most diverse, long-lasting and highly treasured mechanical pencils on the planet. The Twist-Erase family of mechanical pencils continues the tradition, offering a diverse selection of features tailored to meet the needs of consumers.
Variety, the Spice of Life
Twist-Erase mechanical pencils are available in a wide range of barrel styles and diameters. Whether you prefer the side advance function of Twist-Erase Click, the luxurious feel of Twist-Erase III, the extra-soft ribbed grip of Twist-Erase GT, or the soft, smooth grip of Twist-Erase Express, you're guaranteed to find a model that works for you.
Protective Tip Design
Twist-Erase III, Twist-Erase Express and Twist-Erase Click all feature a protective tip that stabilizes lead to reduce lead breakage.
- Express mechanical pencil for home or work
- Long-lasting, latex-free, twist-up eraser
- Pre-loaded with Super Hi-Polymer HB lead -- similar to lead in #2 pencils
- Soft, smooth, latex-free grip for less writing fatigue
- Protective tip stabilizes lead to reduce lead breakage
- Available in 0.5 millimeter, 0.7 millimeter, or 0.9 millimeter tip sizes
Long-Lasting Twist-Up Eraser
Mistakes are no match for the larger-than-ordinary and long-lasting twist-up eraser. No smudges, no paper tears and no ghosts with this latex-free eraser, which is refillable on most models.
Pre-loaded with Pentel Super Hi-Polymer HB Lead
Every Twist-Erase mechanical pencil comes pre-loaded with Pentel Super Hi-Polymer HB lead. Super Hi-Polymer lead is the #1 selling lead in the world. It never needs sharpening, is super strong and produces a clear dark line every time. HB lead is similar to the lead found in a #2 pencil and is guaranteed to scan on all standardized tests.
Twist-Erase mechanical pencils come with latex-free grips in a variety of styles for maximum comfort and control.
Variety of Diameters
Twist-Erase mechanical pencils are available in various diameters from 0.5 millimeter up to 0.9 millimeter (depending on model). Here are some guidelines to help you select the right diameter for you. Keep in mind that you can't put 0.7 millimeter lead in a 0.5 millimeter pencil or vice versa, so it's important that you choose the right pencil for your needs.

I think that the Pentel III will hold up better than the Pentel Twist-Erase EXPRESS. I think that it's well worth the extra expense.
I originally ordered this because I have Parkinson's and had been using .7mm pencils for years but was having a great deal of problems with the leads breaking when I had a spasm. I decided to try this pencil because it had a .9mm lead and I thought that it just MIGHT help with the lead breaking problem so I ordered one. Well, it worked very well for the breakage problem. I haven't broken a lead since I started using this pencil. However, I have discovered other great benefits. The new retracting eraser smooths the whole erasing thing out nicely and makes eraser longevity and changing much less of a problem. The larger soft rubber grip also makes the pencil a LOT easier to hang on to, especially for those with my condition.
One improvement I have learned to make on the grip: The fattest part of the grip, as it comes, is at the top and doesn't add to the ergonomics of holding the pencil much. I have found that if you simply unscrew and remove the bottom of the pencil where the lead comes out, the rubber grip can simply be slipped off, turned around and reinstalled. Now the fat part of the grip is at the bottom and keeps the fingers in a more sure and comfortable position. The way the manufacturer delivers them doesn't make sense in this respect.
However, this pencil is a quantum leap in usability over every other pencil I have ever used and I have since thrown out every other pencil in the house and replaced them with this one.
Thank you Pentel for making a better product to simplify our lives.

The original, if taken apart would be four pieces (apart from led/eraser). This pencil is only three pieces, since the pocket clip (now a more flexible plastic) is one piece with the upper barrel. BTW, the eraser that fitted the original also fits the Express XP.
I've seen the original pencils sell for $3.00 apiece, but this set was a dozen for much less. So a cheaper and simpler design, construction, and material.
But when it comes to performance, this pencil has a flaw. With every one of these pencils I had, both my wife and I experienced that sometimes the lead would break inside the tip so it would be stuck in the tip. This happened A LOT--if it didn't I wouldn't mention it or feel the need to edit my original review (which was five stars by the way, but the one who uses an item for years is not the same as the one who uses it for a day or two). But when the lead gets stuck, how do you dislodge it? First, unscrew the tip. Now look inside the removed tip and you'll see that there is a piece of lead in there and you should not be able to see through the lead hole. Then you have to take another mechanical pencil of the same width, get the lead to protrude about a centimeter, and then carefully push that lead into the tip from where it normally writes. Eventually the broken lead will fall out.Read more ›

The part that turns the eraser on these pencils is too loose. As you write, the eraser keeps getting longer and longer. You have to keep twisting it down. This is really annoying.Published 2 days ago by B E Brady
