The pencil works very well. It looks great (I have a bronze version), looks very sturdy and durable. The writing experience is very pleasant; though I'm biased towards very heavy pencils and pens.
My only complaint would be that sometimes the clicking mechanism seems to not advance the lead - I click and nothing happens. That happens rarely though, and seems to happen only when one piece of lead finishes and the pencil needs to advance a new lead. As that happens very rarely, I find this hardly a problem.
Generally I'm very happy with the pencil.
