    Graph Gear 1000™ 0.5mm with 2B, 3B or 4B graphite. With the exception of woodless graphite, it's the only pencil I use.

    With Sergey on the frustration note, mine always break. These look swish though, worth a try. How's the grip though, is it metal or rubber? Does it get uncomfortable after a while?

    Ema - it's a dual grip which is the best part, because it's made of aluminum and rubber pads! So it doesn't slip and it still feels very comfortable even after a few hours of sketching.

    Just read this from Pixiemall.com

    This full body aluminum professional drafting pencil has a fully retractable tip and a balanced body that makes it a joy to write/draw with. It also features a binder clip that can clip onto thick objects. The rubber textured grip gives you a comfortable and secure hold.

    Though a little bit dated featuring an older model, at Dave's Mechanical Pencils blog there's a more extensive review, which starts with:

    So first off, how does that grip section feel? It’s a fine diamond cut surface with little elliptical rubber inserts. Obviously this is an attempt to try and get the best of both worlds, and I’m pleased to say it’s reasonably successful. It doesn’t feel like an ordinary rubber grip, yet still has a bit of softness about it when you are holding the pencil.

    But I guess it totally depends on how and what you're using it for.
