This item that I've always been interested in at the sales floor. Last week, a new color with a core diameter of 0.5 mm was released, so I decided to take this opportunity to try it.
Three new colors, "Silver," "Gunmetal," and "Gold," have been added this time. With an elegant metallic color that is rare for mechanical pencils in this price range, it seems to blend in with the business scene regardless of gender. The price is 350 yen (excluding tax) per bottle, but there is a sense of luxury beyond that.
For centering, a "Frenock" function is used to shake the pen while holding it. From the tip of the see-through, you can see how the pipe-shaped weight moves up and down and is knocked.
According to the product information, the shaking force is about one-third that of a general mechanical pencil. Certainly, the movement of the pipe is light and I feel that knocking has become easier, but it seems that it is not so when it is said that it is surprisingly light. By the way, you can also center the clip part, but I'm rather surprised at its lightness.
In addition, it also has a "Frelock" function that prevents the core from coming out even if you shake the clip by sliding it upward. This is convenient because the core does not pop out when you carry it.
■ The pay-out type eraser has a calculated thickness
The eraser on the top of the pen is about 5mm in diameter. It comes out when the holder is rotated, so extend it by about 3 to 4 mm before use. The total length of the eraser is 26 mm (practical 16 mm).
The holder is thick, so it's a little hard to see where to erase it, but it's the perfect size to erase just one character! Even if you rub it vertically, the eraser will not bend and you can erase it clearly and cleanly. The eraser that came with the mechanical pencil was small and broke quickly, or it was rubbed and turned black, which was just an emergency image, but this is quite reliable.
■ Writing comfort is like a mechanical pencil
The pen tip uses a 4 mm long tip pipe, which is an application of a traditional mechanical pencil for drawing for learning. I usually use a mechanical pencil for drafting, but since it has a stable writing feel and the pen tip is clearly visible, I can comfortably write small letters and create drawings.
However, I personally felt that the grip part was slippery, so it seems that it will put a strain on my hands if I use it for a long time. It is said that the shaft diameter of the pen body is 1 cm, but isn't it a fairly expensive item for those who are comfortable with this thickness?
■ Pen spinning style!
Of particular note this time is the comfort of having an eraser. There is no need to carry or change hands separately, so writing work is not disturbed so much.
The monograph that comes out and shows you what you want to see is exactly the "selfish body" (?) Of the mechanical pencil world. If you turn it over like a pen spinning and use an eraser, you may be able to create a slightly stylish self.
