Compact, refined, and just the right fit for your hand. These soft textured 0.5 mm mechanical pencils from A.G. Spalding feature an eraser, sliding sleeve to reduce lead breakage and balanced weight. Great for the work place.
I gave it one star because I'm required by the submit function. Im not sure why
this pencil has glowing reviews. Perhaps it's based primarily on aesthetics, it
is a nice looking pencil. However as far as functionality goes I wouldn't give
it a single star. I've only had momentary success with it at best. Usually I
find myself fussing with it - just to get the led out! really?? Whatever - A.G.
Spalding & Bros.... it sucks.
I don't use 0.5 mm pencils much anymore, but I find that this pencil ends up in
my hand around the house more than any other. It's not as pretty as it used to
be, the barrel is smudgey and nicked, but that just proves how quickly it gets
picked up. It's easy on the hand, the lead advances well, holds a stack of leads
without destroying them. The rubbery barrel is still a pleasure to hold (hasn't
gotten gummy); what's not to love here?
Bought it totally by accident, and just use it all the time. Hey, and it looks
This pencil has a rubber body which also means that the white rubber gets dirty
really easily. Luckily, cleaning this pencil only takes a wet towel and it'll be
as clean as you first got it. Otherwise, the rubber body makes it easy to have a
nice firm grip on this pencil. There is some weight to this pencil, but that's
not a problem since I prefer weighted pencils. Would definitely recommend this
pencil to a friend!
