The grip is decent but it isn't thick enough. I have short fingers and that means that thinner items tend to cause my hands to cramp up with extended use. This is not a minus, just a personal issue I wanted to comment on since most pencils are around this thickness.
My main problem would be with the pocket clip/retractor mechanism. I can tell that this part is fragile and will render the pencil useless if you were to actually use it as a pocket clip for any length of time. The moment it gets hung on anything or bends a little, it will fail and the pencil will be useless. I don't use mine like that, but it's just something I noticed. I would recommend to never use the clip for anything but retracting the tip.
Overall I can't recommend anything else over this because the tip can be retrracted into the pencil, which is not a common feature. Every other pencil I've owned has failed due to the tip being slightly bent from storage, a condition which causes the lead to either break or bind up when extending. The other problem I've had with other pencils was that the lead 'clamp' in other devices wore out and the lead would simply slide back into the pencil when pressure was applied, such as during writing -- time will tell on that issue with this pencil.
Currently I have all sizes (.3-.9). On a whim I sprung for the .4mm knowing that it was going to require ordering lead online since you cannot find it in stores here in the US. I do tend to draw in small sketchbooks (5.5x8.5) and I find that the .4mm is fantastic; the lead still allows for nice details while not being as easy to break as the .3mm tends to do.
If I had to put a con down for these pencils, it would be in the weight department. As they are constructed of metal, they do feel heavier in the hand, especially near the top where the clamp is. That imbalance might be an issue for some who are used to a lighter made pencil. It only took me a few weeks before I acclimated to the new feel. Aside from that, these drafting pencils are fantastic! I've used Pentel's products over the years and they have never let me down.
When it comes to any arsenal of art supplies one of the key components is always a pencil, and all though there are many options for mechanical pencils, never have I been more pleased with one.
The first thing that immediately stood out for me was the quality of the pencils entire body. Not just with the quality of the metal body, but the weight is absolutely fantastic. Although a little on the heavier side, once you become adjusted the weight will become one of your best friends for a variety of movements.
Other fantastic qualities that I did not anticipate for the pencil include:
The grip casing that can be rotated in order for you to know what gradient of graphite you have loaded
( HB, H, B, 2B, 2H, )
When the Clip is pressed down on the lead sleeve is retracted back within the body, thus protecting the delicate component.
After buying my first one (the graphgear 1000 0.5 ) , I immediately purchased the .4 and .3 variant of the graphgear 1000. So simply put, if you are an artist or just someone who needs a high quality mechanical pencil do not hesitate to at least try out the graphgear 1000
