The Kerry is a classic...
January 31, 2014
The Kerry is a classic Japanese mechanical pencil -- compact, innovative,
understated, and reliable. I recall buying a Kerry as a highschool student in
Tokyo...that was back in 1965. Today's Kerry is wellmade and the plastic barrel
is serviceable, although Iwould prefer an all-metal body. Some may fined the
cross-hatched chrome-colored ring around the middle a little too much "bling"
but the ability to advance the lead when the cap is posted by simply clicking on
the button is still, I believe, unique to the Kerry. It's an "all-day"
