I have had this pencil...
I have had this pencil for 12 years now, I shit you not. Got it when I was 8 and
still use it as my main writing tool today, as a 20 year old physics student who
does a LOT of writing (I go through one notebook every two weeks, roughly). It
has not broken on me once. Says a lot about the quality I guess, surviving years
of hardship in the clumsy hands of a kid and then going through puberty with it.
My bond with this pencil is probably stronger than my bond with my closest
friend. Had a scare the other day where I thought I'd lost it (turns out I
accidentally kicked it under the bed), I was mentally preparing myself for
having to get a new one and hoping it was still being produced. Thank god it is,
and even more so that I didn't actually lose it. Hence the review. But yeah, go
get it, you won't have (or want) to buy another pencil for at least ten years.
