Top notch item! Hats off to this particular creation!
I'm a student who has to carry around a bunch of items and just like anyone
else, consolidation is key.
Well I wanted to see how this pencil case would stand up to the challenge and
what kind of items I could stuff in it.
The zipper pocket could fit an iphone or ipod easily and have a little roof left
over for small headphones.
The flap pocket underneath was able to hold my garmin nuvi GPS (I don't like
leaving this in the car, heat kills the battery) and I was able to hold the
cords in my main pocket.
The main pocket was able to hold 15-20 pens with pencils, erasers, and extra
lead combined with a notepad and even my dice bag (a bag of dice I use for
games.) I was able to stuff my wallet in there as well. Oh and I can stuff my
keys in easily.
So instead of having to carry 4-5 individual items (GPS, Wallet, iphone, note,
pencils, etc) I can stuff them all into this and carry it safely without fear of
it dropping out.
A Delightful color and as great as any of the other cases! I have 2 myself and
each can hold a plentiful of stationery items for any sketcher or if your like
I carry around about 14 pens(6 Hi-Tec and 8 Signo DX), a BOXY eraser, 2 lead
containers and 1 mechanical pencil; only around that amount does it start
getting a little big, but I doubt most people need to carry around THAT many
This eraser is about half the size of my standard Mars Staelder and obviously
comes in a different color.
The eraser is softer than most, it's very flexible and bends, but that's not the
main point of it aside from that it is very precise as an eraser.
It's black of course, so it dosen't seem like it becomes dirty like white
erasers and always seems to maintain that new package look.
But the main point is, it's a very good eraser, soft and very easy to erase with
and it erases very well and it does not make a mess.
I first used magic rubs, then moved onto Pentel erasers, then moved onto Mars
Staedlers, and now these. I have yet to try Pilot Foam erasers, but I doubt
they'll top the Uni-ball Mitsubishi BOXY Eraser.
I bought this pencil under impulse mainly because I was sick and tired of my old
Zebra 0.5mm mechanical pencils that kept shattering my lead under any form of
pressure, an extreme hassle when trying to write very detailed Kanji or Korean
characters. I upgraded to this pencil and it was a dream, so much that my
friends who were initially skeptical, later was won over by this very same
pencil. This pencil is a great drafting pencil, but I do very little sketching
or drafting since I'm not an artist nor an engineer. I'm simply a person with a
lot of letters to write. The grip is fantastic, it'll never slip, the pencil is
heavier than most but I prefer it that way for the center of balance. The design
is very well done and it's a lovely mesh of metal, but above all it's very
distinct, people stare at if it were from another world. But by far the most
important feature of this pencil is it's extended pencil sleeve, if you look at
the very fine tip, the sleeve is longer than most, double my old zebra. This
allows for lead to not break under pressure and allows for a much faster flow of
writing. Since using this pencil for several months, it's been brutalized
through dozens of philosophy tests, countless Korean/Japanese letters, and just
English in itself, and it never flinched.
I've used several types of lead from Pentel super polymer to premium and then
uni-ball and etc other companies. I stumbled across the Ain B as a gift from a
friend and I was sold. I use a graph gear 1000 (A Pentel drafting pencil), and
with this lead I was able to get a smoother flow of writing in English,
Japanese, and Korean. I could make finer details, but most importantly of all it
rarely, if ever, broke under any sort of pressure. Make note of this when you
have to write a 6 page Philosophy test in 50 min!!
How much lead is in each package? I've used the Super polymer versions but never
the Ain, though I've used other Ain leads and I can attest that their stronger
than their Super cousins and come in greater quantities, which make it easier
for me to carry around. I use a graph gear 1000, personally I think the finest
pencil to use with Pentel lead and using this lead is similar to using a colored
pencil, but with far more control and vastly finer details. The lead is great
for art sketches, writing, or just plain notes!
This case was compact and efficient, it carried all my sketching pencils, pens,
erasers, and about a dozen cases of lead. It was a joy to have on my desk due to
it's standing feature and was very easy to carry around. I wish to see you guys
have it in stock soon so I can buy a few more!!
