| Great little pencil....
, February 21, 2014
Great little pencil. Writes well and has just the right diameter barrel. I would
give it 4.5 stars if possible because i am really just nitpicking with all the
negatives. The pencil holds the lead securely and writes really well. The lead
nib is just the right length and is a stout piece of metal that I am not worried
about while I pocket carry this. The wood is soft and easy to nick, but those
nicks become a part of the nice patina the pencil will develop as the real wood
barrel ages and changes color as it saturates with your hand oils and whatever
is in your pocket.
The lead advance mechanism, while it hasn't failed on in the last two weeks of
pocket carry, isn't as crisp and nice as the Zebra mini TS-3. There is a little
more slop at the eraser end because of this and it feels a little bit fragile.
Additionally, due to the slop, and the softness of the eraser that comes with
the pencil, it has very sloppy erasing action. The eraser flops all over the
place and since I am already writing small and erasing small things, having a
sloppy eraser is not great.

Know what "mini" means? It writes great and fits in small spaces when you travel
and don't want a giant regular pencil. It is so cute, people stare. I like this
little pencil. I took it all over my travels and it fit in my little waist pack

I don't really see the purpose of this pencil. If it were the size of a normal
pencil it would be great. The actual size of this pencil is completely unusable
for an adult. If I had known exactly how small it was I would not have ordered
it. The asking price is also disproportionate.

I love the idea of how they incorporated a mechanical pencil into an old wood
pencil but I must say i was totally caught off guard by the size. It would have
been nice to have a full size pencil with this capability.
