    Remarkably different. Can be used with different writing pressures to vary the intensity of the written line. So far, I have not broken the writing tip. Also, with the new kind of lead in this pencil, writing does not smear and is also cleanly erasable. I am an old time pencil user and find the DelGuard an advancement in the technology of mechanical pencils. Very pleased and highly recommended.

    I really like this pencil so far, but was wondering if there was any way to get additional erasers for it. I can’t seem to find any that look like they will fit.

    I am a math teacher and have tried different brands of mechanical pencil. This is by far the best i have ever used. Great product. I have recommended it to other teachers on my staff. Many do not use pencil because they smear but were impressed by your product. How about some barrel colors for those of us who like “fancy”?

    • Michael Wacewicz

      Thanks for your feedback! We’ll pass your request to our product development team.

    Really like the pencil, but I am so bummed, the barrel at the textured grip cracked vertically (perpendicular to the threads). When I advance the lead I have to keep pushing the barrel back on. Wish it wasn’t plastic

    Great Mechanical Pencil. Purchased from Office Depot here in Baton Rouge,LA. I asked the manager why I couldn’t find extra refill lead. His response was that they were discontinuing the pen. He didn’t know why. Where do you find the Lead and Erasers?

    I bought this pencil in hopes that it would work and the lead would not break. The pencil has never worked once since I purchased it. I should receive another pen of equal value– like two M-301 mechanical pencils. I contacted Zebra and did not receive a reply. Hmm! Maybe I need to buy my pencils elsewhere! I am still hoping to receive a reply and for Zebra to correct this issue by providing me with two M-301 mechanical pencils. Guess we’ll see if they respond.

    I use this pencil a lot at work and I love it. I love that it does not jam, the lead does not break and that it does erase well. A very sturdy mechanical pencil, finally!

    • Michael Wacewicz

      Hi Dawn, we’re glad you love our Delguard Mechanical Pencil! Have you stocked up on lead and eraser refills?

    I like this pen but i was wondering if i could get 0.3 instead of 0.5

    • Michael Wacewicz

      Hi Pranay, thank you for your request. We will forward over to our customer service department.

    I love these pencils. I ordered one for my five year old daughter to prevent her from taking my Bic mechanical pencils and it’s perfect for her. I ended up buying 6 more off of Amazon in both .3mm and .5mm size for myself. These feel great in my hands and as I tend to grip my pencils tightly, I don’t get as much pain in my fingers. I will never go back to using Bic again.

    I bought 2. But its leads are very breakable. let me know its direction of the refilling the leads. From back side …

    • Michael Wacewicz

      Hi Zulaa. Our DelGuard Mechanical Pencil lead is unbreakable as long as you don’t advance the lead by three “clicks.” To refill the lead, all you have to do is take out the eraser and insert more lead!

    is the pencil plastic or metal?

    • Michael Wacewicz

      Hi Kushal, our DelGuard Mechanical Pencil is made out of plastic.

  12. Rated 3 out of 5


    Initially, I want to thank Japanese innovation because of this lead unbreakable mechanical pencil. This is lovely but if the material was metal instead of plastic it would be perfect. I give 3 stars to this innovative product and I hesitate to give 5 because I don’t like its figure. Although I prefer metal, but it’s not even made of high-grade plastic and it does not have a charming appearance. I hope that this innovation use in a glamorous metal mechanical pencil.

    I used to use another popular ink-advance pencil, but when I went to replace it, the new one was absolute junk. The lead kept breaking. Then I switched to DelGuard. First off, the mechanism works great. Lead advance is smooth, and I have yet to break a lead. I also like the innovative lead enough to drive 40 miles to the Japanese bookstore to buy refills rather than using standard leads. However, I did try one other brand as an experiment and the mechanism still works well. This is now my go-to 0.5 pencil. I also like the design and the black color as it looks scientific and professional.

    I am a mechanical pencil junky and at first was disappointed that I had to order it and wait. I ordered two of them and accidentally ordered two of the #7 size lead pencils but absolutely love them, I own almost every type of mechanical pencil out there and so far the Zebra Delguard is the best out there! Just wish I would have orderd one of them as a #5.

    Love my new pencil but how do you change out the eraser? I can’t seem to get the old one out.

    • Kadeem Myrick (verified owner)

      Hi John, we’re glad you like our DelGuard Mechanical Pencil! There is a notch right by the eraser to easily replace your eraser once you’ve gone through it.

    I am a pencil fanatic and their is only on problem with this pencil the lead is so expensive and I have not found a cheaper solution for the unbreakable lead

  18. Rated 3 out of 5


    I really like the pencil and the DelGuard system but I hate that the eraser doesn’t have any clamp or anything to allow you to extend it. Since it only uses erasers without the metal clamp, you can only use around 1/5 of the eraser before you must replace it.

    Can we use different brand of leads for this pencil?

    • Michael Wacewicz (verified owner)

      Hi Rachel. While the DelGuard brand of lead is recommended due to it being more pristine than other lead, you can use different brand of lead for this pencil.

    It’s a fantastic mechanical pencil,although I would prefer a wider barel due to my big hands.
    I see in Ebay there are 0,3 and 0,7 leads compatible versions of the Delguard, but I don’t see those options in your website. Are those fakes or autentic Zebra-made pencils? a Delguard 0.3 would be fantastic.

    • Michael Wacewicz (verified owner)

      Hi Jesús. While Zebra US currently only offers the DelGuard Mechanical Pencil in a 0.5mm point size, Zebra Japan offers it in a 0.3mm and 0.7mm point size.

    I have had issues using this pencil since I first ran out of the initial lead that came in it. I refilled it, with appropriate lead, and it won’t “click” out, no matter how long I tried. I tried placing more in thinking I didn’t refill enough… but I get nothing. I can’t empty the lead, I can’t advance it. I can’t use the pencil. It was phenomenal before it ran out.

    I love this pen, the lead protection system works better than advertised. The only issue I have with it is the plastic is easily scratchable, leaving some nasty white lines, I’d love to see a delguard pencil made out of metal like the M-701.
