Nice looking but .....
This makes a good looking pencil, but it takes more than looks. Unlike most mechanical pencils, the lead is loaded from the tip end rather than from the rear, and it can only accommodate one lead at a time. After a few weeks, the mechanism on mine stopped working, so it has become useless. I make pens to give as gifts, but I make pencils for myself. I use them daily at work. I have yet to find a pencil kit that doesn't stop working or becomes hopelessly jammed. I have better luck with the cheap disposable ones, but I would like to make at least one nice pencil for myself.
