, October 26, 2010
I recieved this eraser today and thought I'd share my initial impressions:
After more than 30 sketches today, and a good deal of erasing for both
correction and toning, I've found this to be a very usable eraser if somewhat
smaller than I was expecting. On the other hand, compared to the MOMOs I usually
use, it's not that small.
I tend to work with a very light hand and while this block produces more dust
than my other Pentel (round click-stick eraser), it's not any worse than my
previous experience with MOMOs. That being said, I just killed off my last MOMO
and thought I'd try these instead of just going with what I've always used. I'm
planning on getting more with my next order so I thought I'd do some
side-by-side comparisons and do my best to remember to write a review.
This is where this block really seems to excell. It seems that it takes half as
many strokes to erase a mark compared to my MOMO but I won't know for sure until
I've had a chance to get some more MOMOs and do a SxS comp.
This block feels a bit softer than I remember the MOMO being. In spite of that
softness, it doesn't seem to wear out any more quickly. The nice part of the
consistency is that it feels like it does a better job of grabbing the paper
without wearing away at it... if that makes sense. It seems to slide over the
paper itself without too much abrasion, but the softness makes it feel like it's
getting a good hold of the graphite.
I've only used it on graphite so far but it's done a good job. The performance
is uniform without any unexpected snags so I can say that the manufacturing
seems to be quality. (Now I wish I could say that for my last batch of kneeded
erasers, but don't get me started.) Since this block's already black, I'm not
sure if there's any loading going on but even after a lot of work which would
typically load any of my previous white polymer erasers, this block is quite
I'll have to save performance with Prismacolor pencils and charcoals for the
next time. HTH....

Ain vs. Uni-Ball boxy= UNI-BALL !
I feel like the Ain is a copy of the uni-ball, even thought it's cheaper, does
not last as long!

This eraser is terrible and awesome!
Good: this eraser erases very well and when you erase it, it feels very
Bad: when you erase very dark 2B lead or higher, the eraser smudges it all
around and you have to go back and erase the marks and smudges. It also leaves a
lot of shavings. It is just like the eraser pink pearl but a little better. I
don't recommend this very much but...... I would highly recomment the black Boxy
eraser.. It is more expensive, but is is worth it. It lasts a long time and it
is VERY SMOOTH when you erase something. On the other hand, this eraser feels
like you are pushing across the paper that doesn't want to be pushed and causes
a lot of friction.

This eraser erases very well, but it leaves a lot of small shavings. I still
gave it five stars since I am not one of those super-picky people that cannot
stand to blow pencil shavings off of my paper. The eraser itself does a
wonderful job, and I cannot complain.
