So far the best pencil extender yet. Light in weight and with a worthy grip
section it excels in easy insertion and removal; especially when you want to
know how much you have left of that precious pencil stub.
A superb pencil extender: (1) grip has knurling but not too much providing easy
control of the point, especially with pencils with leads so smooth they tend to
skid off into space; (2) clip makes it portable and the length is perfect for
placing slightly longer pencils into it; (3) the only minor gripe is the eraser
extender. Either get rid of it with no harm to the goodness of the design or fix
it by making the turning mechanism feel not so loose; and (4) the lead indicator
is an especially nice detail. If you are technically inclined or need to know
what kind of lead you are using in that precious pencil stub you have left, this
is the extender for you.
A well constructed pencil holder that requires some detail work: (1) grip
section is a little slippery. The etched rings help but some stippling would
work even better; (2) the wood diameter creates a noticeable step between the
grip and the wood. A little more tapering on the wood or a little wider grip
section would work pretty well providing continuity of feel and aesthetics; (3)
on the version I received there is no E+M logo and it would help to show pride
of manufacturer; and (4) the wood itself is superb and pleasing to the touch.
Overall, a good but not necessarily great effort. I have a great many pencil extenders but no E+M peanpole extenders yet. Have to
try those to see...Thanks Jetpens for bringing in this great stuff for us to
Purchased because I wanted to see what the buzz was about for this famous
--Nice aesthetics and finish. I like the blue color and grade marker on the end
covering all facets.
--Bought this for writing and find it a good pencil, moderately dark in B with a
core that is smoother but only a little lighter than a similar 2B Koh-I-Noor
Toison D'Or. Its about as dark as a Faber Castell 9000 B and smoother.
--I'd buy this again...unless JetPens decides to bring in more interesting
Don't know what kind of wood this is but it doesn't seem to be cedar; maybe
jelutong/basswood. Sharpening is easy and clean. The B point holds up well and
should last for many paragraphs before sharpening.
This is a pretty good stick eraser except for one thing; don't ever take the tip
off. If you do and then put it back you might start a small hairline body crack
that will eventually cause the tip to fall off. I fixed mine with crazy glue and
its fine now, except for the cracks! For the price its very hard to fault and I
would buy yet another (have two already).
A well built triangular shaped pencil. The best feature is the core; it is dark
but wears very well, holding up to long bouts of writing and drawing. The
finishing is not the greatest when compared against the Hi Uni, Mono, or
blackwing, and the distinct aroma of cedar is not present. However, the look is
unique and the user experience good due to the great core and easy sharpening. I
would buy this again, just for its unique design and good writing quality.
A superior pencil holder worthy of making the last bit of a Mono 100 or other
great pencil shine. The knurled grip feels good and rotating the holder to
maintain pencil points is easy. The clip and built in eraser makes this easy to
carry as well. Overall, a very functional and useful writing tool for whoever
likes to use wood cased pencils.
