So this pencil is TINY....
January 10, 2014
So this pencil is TINY. Like, really really tiny. It didn't register how small
it actually is until I was holding it in my hand. I can't use it for too long or
my hands starts to ache from gripping such a small object. Recommended for the
more petite if you plan to use it for longer stretches.
That said! I really like this little thing and will be ordering a few more in
different colours. It's very sturdy, has a good weight to it (really!) and clips
securely. The eraser is nothing to write home about, but it doesn't streak or
crumble or anything.
I found a surprising use for it that I feel the need to share. On a lark, I used
this instead of my primary mechanical pencil (large, heavy, 0.5) for a few study
pages in my sketchbook, and found myself unconsciously drawing smaller, tighter
lines. I wound up filling the page with about twice as many little diagrams as I
normally would have, with notations crammed into the tightest spaces, even
though the lead size is the same as I usually use. I definitely wouldn't use it
for loose, shaded sketches, but it's going to be right at home with the kit I
use to doodle in coffee shops or on the train.
It looks nice, feels nice, is extremely portable and I'm not afraid of possibly
breaking it despite its size.
