The Pentel Orenz Metal Grip is a variant of the standard Pentel Orenz mechanical pencil.
In February 2020 a new knurling style was announced which moved the pencil from a circular pattern to a raised rectangle (like a pyramid which had the point on top removed). This change makes the pencil more comfortable with less of a sharp or jagged feeling relative to a standard diamond-shaped knurling. The pencil has an incredible 3240 of these blocks carved into the grip.
In February new colors to the plastic barrel were added: blue, platinum, and green.
The pencil is sold in 0.2 mm, 0.3 mm, and 0.5 mm. The 0.2 mm lead size has matte paint while the other two sizes use a glossy coating.
