Review: Pentel Sharp P205

Pentel Sharp P205
The Pentel Sharp is an old pencil. It's been around for quite a long time, and my dad has owned one of these pencils for over 30 years now. It is still in pristine condition.

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!
