I am very pleased with...
January 7, 2013
I am very pleased with this eraser, it's quite practical. If you're the type of
person that writes with fair to medium pressure, Matomaru-kun erases with
extreme ease, you just have to lightly go over the area and the pencil marks
completely dissapear! If, however, you write with a lot of pressure to the point
where you make slight indentations in the paper, Matomaru-kun will erase ~98% of
the pencil markings (erasing takes more force), it leaves a slight trace of the
markings where the indentations in the paper occur. This trace is not very
noticable, however, the heavy erasure causes the paper surrounding the eraser
to dig into to eraser, so if you tend to erase very heavily, this action might
cause the paper to make a significant cut into the side of the eraser.
As for the clumping action of the eraser debris, I have found that it is very
minimal with my HB pencil lead, but it works like a dream with my photo-blue 2B
pencil lead. All of the debris clumps together with the softer lead.
As for the size of the eraser, it is quite short (~3 inches), but it lasts a
while. The eraser is about 1cm wide, if you're looking to erase fine details,
this probably isn't right for you. The white plastic part on the back of the
eraser came off on mine (because I was messing with it :P), but it stayed in
place once I put it back. The clear cap for the eraser sticks right onto the
back white piece, so it is quite useful.
