I was really excited...
I was really excited to start using this pencil -- so much so that I tore it open as soon as it arrived. I LOVE the look of it -- I have a thing for plain white stationary supplies, for some reason -- and the eraser is so unique and different compared to what I'm used to. The lead is really smooth and I can't remember writing with a pencil that flowed so effortlessly. Unfortunately, I've learned the hard way that I don't like pencils that write this smooth, haha -- oops! And I have problems with the eraser, too. I love the idea of it being big enough to last, and I love the idea of re-positioning it as it wears down, but the eraser itself is kind of... inefficient. No matter how hard you erase, you can still see whatever you wrote/draw. If you're using these pencils just for writing, like myself, it's fine, but those who use these pencils for art should definitely use a separate eraser! I'm glad JetPens is selling them by the single pencil, because I almost bought an entire box and I would have been really disappointed, given the price of them. All in all, a good pencil that I will continue to use, but the chances of me replacing it when it's all used up are slim.
