, October 10, 2011
My new Go To Pencil. Out of all my mechanical pencils (& I have quite a few)
this has quickly become my primary tool. If you appreciate good mechanical
pencils like me, enough to have a collection of them, that says it all. Listed
as a drafting pencil it is very comfortable for writing also. If you just need
a pencil, there are less expensive ones that will do the job. This one does it
with comfort, quality, & class.

a blend of nature and mechanics. this is just what i was looking for. I've
purchased quite a few mechanical pencils, some for pure collecting reasons, or
just because they looked so darn cool, but most importantly, trying to find a
pencil that would feel comfortable in my hand. this one is pretty darn close. my
go to pencil has always been the pilot s3, great, but all plastic and just a
little too light weight for my hand. The grip on the s20 was a bit too rough,
but this one is just right. comfortable feel of wood against the fingers, not
too light and not too heavy. seems solid wood from what i can see, but i havent
taken it apart, so i cant be sure. however, since it is wood, it's best to keep
it in a dry place. a little moisture would no doubt make the wood warp, puff up,
or if its veneer, its sure to peel off, so handle with care just in case.
overall a great pencil for use or for your collection. I might have to order one
more just for collecting :)
