The Forte has a comfortable grip; it holds the lead securely, so it doesn't rotate or float as you write; it has an exposed and easy-to-use eraser, which doesn't cause the lead to advance when you use it; and, it is reasonably priced.
Its only shortcoming is that the lead sleeve doesn't retract, making it impractical to carry in a pocket without risking a tear in your shirt or a jab in your chest. So, for carrying in a pocket, I'd use something else; for the desk or briefcase, the Forte is great.

It gets the job done. There is a rubber piece that holds the lead in place inside the metal tip. Sometimes it falls out and is almost impossible to place back in. The lead breaks easily if you don't put it back. Also the lead sometimes get stuck inside this tip. Otherwise, it is a decent pencil for everyday use. Good thing you get 4 in a pack because 1 or 2 may malfunction.

Comments about Pentel Forte® Automatic Pencils 0.5mm, Black Barrel, 4/Pack:

If you're looking for a pencil that is either stylish or for one that comes in many colors, you should look elsewhere. This pencil is available in any color you want, so long as it's black. But the designers at Pentel got the A55's form, fit, and function right early on with this pencil and have had the wisdom to not unnecessarily fiddle around with it over the years. The A55 fits comfortably in my hand, has easily replaceable leads and erasers, is highly durable, and its metal clip keeps it securely in my pocket. This pencil has become the only one I use for everyday tasks. But even these pencils don't last forever. I lose some to "loaning" them out to others, some to my own habit of misplacing (losing) them, and some to normal "wear and tear." Sadly, I have recently noticed that they are no longer easy to find on store shelves - but fortunately they are still available online at Staples.com.

          This is a good product for the price. I've used them for years. They are inexpensive enough that if you lose one, it is no big deal to replace it.
