The Staedtler 925 25 0X offers a solid package for a reasonable price. Although, it is a drafting pencil, and not much more. So, if you like quality, check it out. Other good buys in this category include: Rotring 600, TWSBI Precision, Alvin Draft/Matic, Platinum Pro-Use I.
Writing Experience: Good
Cost: Moderate (13-25 USD)
Pros: Solid metal construction including brass clutch and sturdy pocket clip, lead hardness indicator, light in the hand
Cons: I’m not a fan of the knurling style on the grip.
Verdict? A worthy addition to the Honorable Mentions list!
