I love to write with a good pen or pencil that feels good to hold for extended periods. This a high quality pencil, but the combination of thin pencil and shiny metal grip make the pencil not the most comfortable to hold for extended writing. The Palomino Blackwing pencils, also available from Levenger, are excellent pencils. I have both lead types and both types are, in my opinion, five stars.

I closing, this Faber-Castell pencil might work for you, it just didn't work for me.

Faber-Castell is my go to pencil, this one's my favorite!

Comments about Faber Castell Faber-Castell TK Fine Vario Pencil:

I use this for detail sketching and technical drafting. I use the 0.5mm and the adjusting firmness makes all the difference. The long lead sheath means neary a break and the extra long eraser gets into details.
The slim, ergonomic design eliminates hand fatigue - this is an excellent platform, I highly recommend it.

Comments about Faber Castell Faber-Castell TK Fine Vario Pencil:

Love this product. Thought that I would have a hard time with writing because people have posted that your fingers slip down, however, for me it works fine and I do not have this problem, but that's because of the way I hold it. (I could see why people would say it slips). Love it though, and the styles nice but it could be better.

Comments about Faber Castell Faber-Castell TK Fine Vario Pencil:

Better than those cheap mechanical pencils in which the mechanism has a tendency to jam or break after a year or two. A bit narrower body than I would like but the pencil seems to be well constructed and so far the mechanism seems solid.

Great Mechanical Pencil

Comments about Faber Castell Faber-Castell TK Fine Vario Pencil:

Love...Love...Love this mechanical pencil. It's well engineered and a pleasure to write with...at a very reasonable price.

Levenger carries replacement leads. Wish you had the extra long eraser refills like the one that comes with the pencil.

Great mechanical pencil

Comments about Faber Castell Faber-Castell TK Fine Vario Pencil:

This is a well engineered mechanical pencil with a comfortable feel and outstanding writing experience. I've spent far more on lousy mechanical pencils that are flimsy and break after a few uses. I'll be buying more of these to give as gifts and another for myself to carry around so I can keep one in my office.

This pencils are so good that I have given them as Christmas gifts for several years. Everyone loves them. The 7mm in particular brings back the joy of writing with a pencil. So smooth

Comments about Faber Castell Faber-Castell TK Fine Vario Pencil:

I bought this pencil in 1996 along with the 0.3mm. I love the 0.5mm. It's performed flawlessly. I print too hard for the 0.3mm, but I use it mainly for drawing and it works great for that. So, I'm online ordering another 0.5mm to keep at work.
