After I sharpened it,...
, March 3, 2012
After I sharpened it, it was stunning to see the wide core. I used it for
general writing, so keep in mind that a facet of the uses of the wide core was
not used: its shading abilities. As a 4B, it is smoother than most pencil I have
used, but as expected from a 4B pencil, it gets dull rather quickly. I was a
mechanical pencil user, and this pencil, doubtless, is smoother than the highest
grades of mechanical pencil lead such as Ain Stein or Nanodia. The wood is
easily sharpened, although that trait is common these days among many other
pencil, even ones of lower grade, since most of them are made from cedar. The
barrel is just a bit wider than most cheaper pencils on the market, which makes
it a bit more comfortable to hold, and there is indeed a heavier weight to it,
although not by much at all. The aesthetic qualities of this pencil is also
doubtlessly nice, and compared to Dixon Ticonderoga (the best pencil that you
can get in a supermarket in America these days), it is a lot better, although
Ticonderoga is also nice. There isn't much to wooden pencils, but this pencil
stands out from all other pencils in all areas, and the best part of this pencil
would be the darkness and smoothness of its wide lead core. This isn't a pencil
that you can buy anywhere.
