|Pentel Sharp P205|
With that "history" in mind, the Pentel Sharp is a very nice pencil. I own a Pentel Sharp P205, which writes with .5mm lead. It has a nice black paint job. The tip is a heavy metal type, and it is a very small tip. The eraser is small also. The pencil is nice and skinny. You could slip in it a pocket, but be warned, the tip is very sharp!
I love how this pencil writes. For a .5mm pencil, the lines it creates are very nice and fine, something I adore. The finger grips that come with this pencil are pretty good; they provide a solid gripping surface for your fingers, although it's not all too comfortable.
The aethstetics of this pencil make it seem like a classy, nerd-type pencil. The clip and eraser cap help pull off that look.
Pros: Nice looking, writes very well, good weight, useful parts for penspinning (ie tip), durable
Cons: Sub-Par Grip, Expensive
Overall: 8/10. This pencil will last a very long time when treated right. A great investment!
