Ah... this pencil is just wonderful. I have a whole bunch in green, pink, and blue for sketching. The colors are bold and bright (just like the picture they posted above) - and because they are not graphite-colored, you can very easily lineart or ink your work over it. It writes very smooth, while giving you the crisp controlled lines you look for in a mechanical pencil. Amazing product, and they last.

This little kit can be a lifesaver! Jams can happen with mechanical pencils, and they are really frustrating to try and fix. The cleaning rods are a simple and effective way of dealing with jams. Worry-free. Get this if you use mechanical pencils, kay? ;)

A WONDERFUL pencil! I've been searching for colored mechanical pencil leads for so long, and these Pilot Color Eno pencils were quite the find. The lead creates soft, but sharp lines. I use it to sketch - I reccommend the bright blue and green lead for sketching, because they are very vivid, but your ink will cover it nicely. As for the pencil itself, it is very comftorable in the hand. The 'gummy' grip is nice as well. The eraser is great for emergancy detail erasing, but will wear down quickly.

If you're an artist and want to try a mechanical pencil for your sketching, these pencils are just the thing. ^^

This is a very attractive mechanical pencil body. But each time I've had one, it's gotten a terrible jam and is rendered unusable unless you have a clean out rod! If you are willing to stop and fix your pencil every so often, the design of the Ohto Tasche is gorgeous and, despite its slimness, is very comftorable to write or draw with.

As a person who prefers mechanical pencils to traditional ones, I was absolutely thrilled by the Pentel Sharp Kerry. Its design is attractive, sleek, and functional; I've never had a jam with this! I was very impressed by the smoothness of the lead advancing mechanism. It gives you the perfect amount of lead, as well.

The Kerry won't let you down, and it'll look pretty to boot!

This pencil case is the best I've ever owned - I bring it everywhere! The material is very durable. The bright blue handles and zipper are really appealing and easy to find in a dark bag! It's small enough to be chic, but large enough to hold all of my pencils, pens, and erasers. There is a small zippered compartment on the base which I use to hold pencil refills.

My advice is to absolutely give this case a chance. You'll love it!
