Review: Kokuyo ME Mechnical Pencil

A good mechanical pencil composes of 2 things, a good holder and good pencil lead. 

I reckon you get what you pay for when it comes to mechanical pencils. 

The mechanical pencil from Kokuyo's ME range of stationery is decently priced but it has a feature that really caught my eye. 

It's the eraser at the end of the pencil. 

An eraser at the end of a mechanical pencil is not new but the Kokuyo ME one is retractable and it's a decent sized too. 

First up, I tested the pencil lead. It's really smooth to write with and doesn't break easily, which can sometimes be a problem with cheaper pencil lead. 

I tested the eraser next. 

To retract it, you twist the top until your preferred amount of eraser has been retracted. 
The eraser works really well too. Much better than any other eraser that I've found attached to a mechanical pencil.

It reminds me of a full size retractable eraser. 

If you are in the market for a new mechanical pencil and don't want to be carrying a separate eraser, I think this is a great pencil to buy. (I haven't looked into the eraser refills yet unfortunately)

Definitely get the Kokuyo pencil lead too, it's buttery smooth to write with and would be great for drawing as well. It's a great pencil to travel with too.
