with such thin lead,...
August 12, 2011
with such thin lead, i use a canister of ain stein lead because it is EXTREMELY strong. i am a big fan of uni low wear nano dia lead, but if i use any thing thinner than 0.5, this is the stuff you want to use.

This is a good lead. It writes smoothly and lays a nice dark line. Most importantly, it is strong. I haven't broken any yet.

My only qualm with this lead, if I can describe this correctly, is this: I like to write on the "edge" of the lead. When I first load the lead I scribble on a piece of paper to get a nice 45 degree angle on it. I then write with the edge of that 45 degree angle to give me more precision, and I like how it "grips" the paper a bit more. With this lead though, it seems too soft and when I write it builds up lead particles on the lead itself which needs to be blown away after writing a few lines. Not a huge issue, but my Uni lead does not do this on 0.4 or my 0.3.

Hopefully this all makes sense. Besides that it is a very good lead.

I have always preferred 0.5mm to 0.7mm because of the greater precision and the reduced surface area contact with the paper. Having found the 0.4mm led, I have to say it's even better than 0.5. Makes a finer stroke, but isn't so thin that it's prone to breaking. I have also tried the 0.3mm led, but I've found, for the amount of pressure I apply, that breaks too easily.
