Utterly delightful little sketching tool! Ergonomics are always subjective, but
the stubbiness puts the cap right in the web of my thumb, while the taper begins
right where it should to anchor gently against the spring of flesh. I carry a
couple of cheap twist-style lead pointers I bought at a local college bookstore
drafting supply section to keep it sharp, but any non-rotary pointer should
work. This is a decently chunky pencil, very solid-feeling (all metal, inside
and out), though surprisingly lightweight. This is instantly a classic pocket

WOW, lucky me, my son...

WOW, lucky me, my son (6 years old) has to use a special pencil at school to
help with his grip, it requires 2mm lead. So I came to Jetpens to buy 2mm lead
and while I was here, looked at a way to use the lead for myself since it made
sense to order the lead in larger quantities, shipping blah blah, well I decided
on this pencil and WOW!!
So its instantly my absolute favorite pencil for so many reasons, I do a LOT of
writing in pencil on my job during our busy season and my hand cramps up
TERRIBLY because I simply must press forcefully with the pencil due to the need
to make multiple copies of the documents, I started using this pencil with 2B
lead, WOW first with the 2B you dont have to press as hard, it comes out bold,
and this pencil I get absolutely NO cramping in the hand. Its PERFECT!!
I had other smaller writing tools in the past, and they didnt fit right, and
also lead to hand cramps, the lenght on this is perfect, and I have long
fingers, so I imagine this would be usable to almost everyone. Solid metal, its
just a fantastic lifelong pencil, I started looking for the pens to go along
with, but apparently there are some plastic pieces in there. I will be ordering
the full length of this pencil when I need lead again.
I cant say enough about this pencil, I like writing instruments a lot, but I am
no collector by any means, this pencil I cannot recommend highly enough. The
lead lasts a LOOOOOONG time, but you do have to sharpen it often with the softer
leads like the 2B, so its not as "productive" as a standard .5mm or anything
like that, but really it doesnt take much time to sharpen.
It also looks like something from a long long time ago, really cool vintage
looking pencil to have laying around the desk, I love this
