Zebra Arbez Piirto Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Black - ZEBRA MA66-BK
7/23/2014
I really like this pencil. I knew from the description that it would not have an eraser. Most of my wood pencils don't have an eraser (they are art pencils). I thought the body looked interesting and ergonomic, and orange is one of my favorite colors.

I was more than pleased when I got the pencil. It has a triangular shape - there are six sides to the upper barrel - three curved alternating with three flat. Ergonomics are different for everyone.

About Zebra

Zebra of Japan was originally established in 1897. Its founder Tokumatsu Ishikawa decided to use zebra print as its trade mark in the hope that business' employees and customers herd together like a big zebra family.

Zebra's corporate philosophy is, "Revisit the past to reveal new knowledge (温故知新)." The company strives to develop writing instruments that are in step with the progress of culture.

For example, Zebra invented the first multi pen and called it "Sharbo" in 1977. The name is a combination of "sharp" (i.e. mechanical pencil) and "ball" (i.e. ballpoint pen). Zebra continues to capitalize on the multi space, creating a premium multi pen line under the name "Sharbo X" and adding other affordable and innovative product lines like the Clip-On series (known for their binder clip) and the nuSprial series (known for their ergonomic grip).
