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.
A somewhat not so easy to find sharpener and very pleased there's an easy source
to find them now. There's a level of precision in this bullet sharpener that is
missing from the standard wedge Kum making it far better and a joy to use.
Thanks Jetpens for bringing this little gem in.
A well constructed, well designed mechanical pencil. Overall length is good but
somewhat miss having a clip. The faceted design helps to keep it from rolling
off the desk. I would buy another in 0.7 mm. Thanks JetPens.
