Great pencil....

Great pencil.
The first thing I noticed...

The first thing I noticed was how fragile the wood was during sharpening. While the lead never broke, some wood would chip on occasion leaving the base of the lead exposed.

The general appearance of the pencil is simple and, as advertised, very reminiscent of the yellow #2 pencils of yore. The finish is satisfactory on the one I received. At first glance, it is fine but upon closer inspection, it appears there are inconsistences in the enamel used. It appears as though it were hand painted. All the stamps were even, except "For General Writing" which slants downward.

The eraser works for this softness (H), but I wouldn't use it on a regular basis. It would not last long under normal consistent wear. The shavings tend to roll into themselves and into a long line of varying thickness.

My writing instrument of choice, for the most part, is a fountain pen, so my touch has become variably light. Writing with this pencil, it feels like it pushes back. The lead does have some bite/tooth/scratch and does keep a point for a good period. It doesn't require often rotation, but when it happens, this exposes the side with the bite. For my tastes, the lead is too light and though I won't write with it, it will have its uses elsewhere.

Paper used: Strathmore's Writing paper, 24lb Woven
