I can not think of any...

I can not think of any 3.0 mm lead holder options (not including the 3.15 mm clutch pencil size) other than the Caran D'Ache Fixpencil 3 as readily available in the market these days. Thus I couldn't pass the opportunity to try this Maruzen Art pencil, and add it to my collection of sketching tools. Given the greater resistance against breakage of wider leads, 3.0 mm is a good choice for heavy handed users that tend to snap off pieces from 2 mm and smaller diameter leads. Since I usually remove them, I do not mind the absence of a pocket clip. Yet with its compact dimensions, it can fit easily within most pockets or pencil case. Just be careful with it since it has a tendency to roll off inclined surfaces. Sleek and comfortable, I have enjoyed doodling and shading with it for the past couple of days during classroom demonstrations. It is easy to lay down thick strokes and large areas of tone quickly with it. The integrated lead pointer works adequately and it is quite convenient when using it as part of a minimalist sketching kit.
