This is the first time...
April 17, 2016
This is the first time I have ever used soft lead, throughout all my years of
schooling and the like, I've been using #2 lead or HB lead. I used this,
obviously with the Pentel Orenz. The difference in writing was immediately
apparent between the HB or B lead I used and this 2B lead. It's smooth, so
smooth that it honestly feels as if I'm writing on butter (not all the time).
The Pentel Orenz and its sliding sleeve does not clash against the smoothness
and softness of this lead, so you can continue writing beautifully and easily as
you normally would.
The only issue I've come across, and this isn't entirely the leads fault, but
the only time my Pentel Orenz has jammed has been when I used this lead. I think
it's a mixture of the softness of this lead and the way the mechanism works on
the Orenz. I'm not entirely sure, of course, but it's something I am actively
thinking about as I write, now.
Is this lead amazing? Yes, very much so, it's smooth and easy to write, the
lines are significantly darker than the HB or H lead, even when using a light
hand. A great purchase if you ask me =).
