rOtring 500 0.5mm 机械铅笔，黑色 (502505N) 0.5 毫米 黑色
- rOtring 500 Mechanical Pencil, Black, 0.5mm
- Best for Drafting
The black 0.5mm 500 Clutch Pencil by Rotring ia a premium light-weight plastic pencil with a hexagonally shaped body and metal-grip zone. Within the pencil is a brass mechanism that precisely advances the lead with a guidance sleeve preventing breakage as you write. The hexagonal shape allows the pencil to lay on flat surfaces without rolling and provides comfort as you grip onto the barrel. Featuring an adjustable lead harness grade indicator the 500 mechanical pencil also includes a built-in eraser under the push-button cap. Loaded with high-polymer HB leads.
Now that I have a 500, I will keep it as a backup mech pencil to carry & use when I'm out & about as I'm not concerned about losing it.
The 500, with its plastic barrel, is too lightweight for my taste. Although the 500 has a nice knurled metal grip and lead hardness indicator, I find it difficult to write with.
If you're undecided between the 500 and 600 models, spend the extra $5 for the 600.
The 600 has a perfect amount of heft, is perfectly balanced, and IMO is nearly the finest mech pencil ever produced. (Had Rotring engineered a retractable tip without the wobble of the 800 - it would be the perfect mech pencil).
The 500 is nonetheless a nice pencil if you're looking for an affordable, LIGHTWEIGHT option.

I LOVE its very traditional design, I love that it is all black, and I absolutely love how nicely it fits in my hand when using it.
The body is made of black plastic. The grip is made of black metal that prevents slipping. The weight of it is ideal since it's lightness encourages my hands to keep writing (it's debatable whether that is a good or bad thing). There is a basic clip that serves its purpose quite nicely, and it has a tiny eraser under the black cap that comes in very handy when I want to erase some minute thing that would otherwise distract me from continuing my writing. Note that I mainly use it to hand-write, not to draw, but it is reminiscent of my days in college when I took art classes and stole a similar one from a then-boyfriend. Well, it's true. It had a good fit then, and I love the fit now. Of the pencil.
I clip this on an equally black Moleskine notebook where I write before going to sleep. I chose this pencil because with it I can write from any angle, even facing up, all my deepest and darkest secrets and it will not break the lead making it fall into my mouth or nose.
I hope this helps.
