I've got a range of expensive and inexpensive pencils, but this is the one that
I consistently come back to. I've had to replace it a ton of times because my
friends have "borrowed" the pencil only to never have it return. It may not be
the prettiest pencil, but the form and function of its design it what makes you
an addict. Love how the eraser both extends and retracts AND it erases SO
CLEAN! Leads last longer and you can write/draw for a long time without
cramping. It's the best!
While I love using mechanical pencils, sometimes you need a good wooden pencil
for artwork and when the mood strikes. Why is it that pencil companies always
seem to skimp on the eraser? These eraser caps are UH-MA-ZING!!! Worth every
penny! For the standard No. 2 pencils they work really well, but for the HB
wooden pencils, they work really, REALLY well. Never, ever going back to those
noxious pink eraser heads...be warned though, they wear down quickly so it's
worth it to by a couple of packs...fantastic even for soft paper...LOVE THEM!!!
Lamy's are slightly wide in the nib, even for an EF, but totally worth it! I've
dropped on, stepped on and accidentally sent it through the washing machine and
it still worked like it has never been abused! A great, inexpensive pen for
every day use.
I have a broad range of pens from extremely inexpensive to high end...this pen
writes terribly, is an exploding mess and writes worst then the disposable pens
you can get from regular office supply stores...this pen looks good, but is bad,
THIS PEN IS FANTASTIC!!! A light body, not too short and not too long. What I
love most about it is that the fine point nib is super fine point. It writes
amazingly smoothly--however, the lime green color is really more of a neon,
day-glo green if that's an issue to you.
