The violet lead is amazing! I use it for doing sketches in my product design
classes and is all around cheaper in terms both time investment and price when
compared to using verithins or col-erase pencils, as far as purchasing and
having to sharpen constantly to maintain a strong point. The only reason for the
4/5 rating is the price, if only it were a bit cheaper. Oh well I'll just have
to stockpile before other students catch wind of these. Oh, and by the way white
vinyl erasers usually take care of mistakes but don't grind the lead into the
paper or you're just asking for trouble.
This lead is pretty good if you just want to do under drawing for inking or
sketches but you have to put some real weight down to get it really dark. If you
are a industrial/ product design student I would advise against this. You are
better off with verithins or col-erase. If only they sold the lead for those
without all that wood.
These pencils feel great, cheap and look cool. I've had one for a year or so now
and just found out these go for $5 here. It's good for drawing, note taking and
drafting. The lead indicator is a nice touch. I like the overall design it just
looks professional. You need to try this out!
GET THE FINE TIP THE EXTRA FINE'S TIP IS TOO FRAGILE!! I got both the fine and
extra fine tip comic nib fountain pens but within 2 days the extra fine one
crapped out on me. If you need a finer line just get a something around .2 mm or
