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
