First off I would like to thank Jetpens for re-stocking the E+M Move, I waited what seemed several months to get one for myself.
A family story starts here so if you wish just skip to the next paragraph.
Before I was born and continuing today, my family has played a little game whenever something gets sent through the mail. Inside a package there is a little wooden mouse. There is only a single mouse so whoever "finds" it in a package is now the keeper of the mouse. After a time, sometimes years, the mouse turns-up in another box someplace else. The mouse is very old. It is wooden, has a leather tail and ears with two hard black beads for eyes. It looks like it's made from the same wood as the E+M Move Zebrano pencil! When I first spotted the E+M Move here on Jetpens' web site, I was immediately distracted from reason.. I had to have one!
The E+M Move is a simple design. There is no eraser and recharging is done through the same opening through which the lead is discharged. Advancing the lead is through twisting the two parts of the pencil, turn the wood and metal for more lead. Sounds almost like alchemy!
You can 'free carry' this pencil in your pocket, but be careful you don't hurt yourself when sitting, the thing is strong and well-built. You won't bend or hurt it but it could wedge it's self such as to give you a good jab. Another warning has to do with when and where you expose the E+M in your possession. People are attracted to this thing like some sort of weird magnet! You won't get much done if your 'Move" is on in public :)
I can't think of anything bad to say about the E+M Move pencil other than it's susceptible to oil stain and other wet dirt. The wood is not sealed so this is not a pencil you would use in the garage or someplace wet. This is not a bad thing as it allows the owner to have other great pencils for these locations.
Thank you E+M and thank you Jetpens!

This pencil has a nice, warm feeling in my hand and the lead supplied with it is soft and dark. I will mainly use it as a drawing pencil. I tend to like my writing pencils to be 0.5 - 0.7mm and this is just too thick for my smaller handwriting. I also tend to like short, fat pencils. I love all of the E + M products I have purchased and am glad Jetpens stocks them. Jetpens are great to do business with.

The wood grain on this pencil is what attracted me initially - that and the fact that it's small and has a very satisfying shape. I love the minimal design, the old-fashioned twist mechanism, and the soft fat lead. It's easy for my arthritic hands to hold. The coolest thing, though, is that the wood is finished in such a way that it still really feels like wood, wood that's been lovingly finished and not coated with some tawdry plastic material. An eraser would have been nice, except that it would have destroyed the lovely design. Just gives me an excuse to order something else! Maybe they'll design a retractable eraser with the same shape and material.
