    i like the idea of a mechanical carpenter’s pencil but there are a lot of bugs to work out in the design. if you push too hard the “dura-lead” either breaks or gets pushed back into the pencil. the part of the pencil that grips the lead should be stronger and support the lead inside the pencil more so that it won’t break off inside so easily.

    I’ve had this about 2 weeks. In that period, I regularly grabbed for my trusty carpenter’s pencil – far more than the Striker.

    Even of a sound concept, its design leave much to be desired. Like its jaws – with an accidental jolt or twist whilst scribing lines/layouts, they give way. And cause the lead to retract into the pencil body.

    I’ll think again twice before purchasing another pair – except as a Gift.

    Thought this was great for the first week, then I saw it at Home Depot under their name for less than half of the price of Amazon. Currently being sold in HD stores for $1.99. Lead seems to not mark well… almost as effective as using a pen rather than a pencil. Meh.
