Purchased because I wanted...
Purchased because I wanted to see what the buzz was about for this famous pencil:
--Nice aesthetics and finish. I like the blue color and grade marker on the end covering all facets.
--Bought this for writing and find it a good pencil, moderately dark in B with a core that is smoother but only a little lighter than a similar 2B Koh-I-Noor Toison D'Or. Its about as dark as a Faber Castell 9000 B and smoother.
--I'd buy this again...unless JetPens decides to bring in more interesting woodcase pencils!
Don't know what kind of wood this is but it doesn't seem to be cedar; maybe jelutong/basswood. Sharpening is easy and clean. The B point holds up well and should last for many paragraphs before sharpening.
