This pencil is very solid....
January 30, 2013
This pencil is very solid. I like it's weight, which I would say is med-heavy,
It is almost entirely aluminum and steel. The pencil lead reservoir tube inside
It has a nice eraser which is capped off by a solid aluminum piece, as you can
see in the nice picture.
The tip, which has a solid fixed 4mm sleeve, is also solid metal and screws onto
solid brass threading
onto the main body inside the pencil. I'm picky about this issue... I do not
like tips (which are almost
always metal) which screw onto plastic parts... And you often do not know this
feature until you buy
it and unscrew the tip for yourself at home, to see what's inside. So here you
go... in case you are
like me and care... this tip screws onto solid brass!
It's very precise, and it helps me "see" good lines when I'm drawing. It's
inspiring to use.
Lacks a solid "click" sound when advancing lead, but I'm not thinking about that
when I'm drawing and
seeing those nice lines as they draw themselves when the pencil's in my hand...
Also, I wanted the big version, but settled for this because it's fat older
brother was sadly out of stock.
But I was not at all disappointed with this slim version.
