Today: a closer look at Staetdler’s handsome 925 15 mechanical pencil. You might remember it from a previous blog post from 2017.
It’s quite affordable and surprisingly light, maybe even too light for some users’ liking. In this video we’ll have a closer look at the 925 15.
Open in YouTube to watch in high resolution.
I bought the 0.3 mm version, so the video is about only covering this version, but this pencil is also available in 0.5mm, 0.7mm and 0.9mm.
The official price is ¥500 (~$4.40; £3.30; €3.75), but by the time you add shipping from Japan (when you buy from eBay) the price is a bit higher – still not expensive though.

I hate rubber grips. They get dirty, get scratched, and finally they crumble.
Some of the bad rubberised surfaces become sticky after a few years. Luckily Staedtler seems to use better quality rubber, so I haven’t noticed this problem yet with a Staedtler product.
The 925 15 has disadvantages for my use, e.g. it is difficult to put in a loop, but I really like the look of this pencil.
