These leads are individually...
December 10, 2007
These leads are individually color-coded (indicating its hardness) with a ring
on the end that prevents them from falling off the leadholder. A practical
feature I had not seen in decades that prevents accidental drops and lead
breakage (when pressing the button absent-mindedly). The leads also fit and work
in Staedtler Mars Technico leadholders. I tried fitting them in my Faber-Castell
TK 9400 and Caran D'Ache leadholders, but I would have had to snip off the
useful stopper ring for them to fit. The leads sharpen easily and glide fairly
smoothly over the paper (similar to the graphite from Mitsubishi UniStar pencils
and less smoothly that the Hi-Uni grade). Good value for this quality.
