Pentel Hi-Polymer Ain Pencil Lead - 0.3 mm - HB - PENTEL C253-HB
12/22/2014
Toughest 0.3mm lead I’ve got.
I’ve gotten used to Ain as my go-to lead, so when I wanted to try 0.3mm lead when I’ve been accustomed to 0.5mm I, of course, turned to Ain.

It’s not unbreakable by any means, but out of the three different brands I’ve tried Ain seems to have broken the least.

About Pentel

The name "Pentel" is derived from the combination of "pen" and "tell" and was originally the name of a product line. In 1971 however, Pentel Co., Ltd. of Japan adopted it as its company name after the product line of sign pens became wildly successful.

Originally founded in 1897, this writing instrument manufacturer is primarily known for its intelligently designed Pentel "Sharp" (i.e. Japanese way of calling a mechanical pencil). Other fan favorites include the metallic body Graphgear line, the variegated Graph series, and the all American beauty Kerry series.

Recently, Pentel entered the gel ink pen and brush pen categories. Both its Slicci gel ink pen and Pocket brush pen have been well received by its customers.
