So, let me say this: I am a FUSSY buyer of pens and pencils. Everything needs to
be 'just right' for me to feel good using them... and as any artist knows,
'feeling good' is necessary to be at your best.
I've bought expensive drafting pencils and all that before, $10, $15, $20... but
this pencil trumps them all, I'd dare say! Very nice and short tip (some
mechanical pencils are hilariously long for some reason!) and the soft color is
really pleasing to the eye.
What's even better is that I have had practically NO breakage of the pencil
graphite, which is common with a .03 size.
Worth the purchase! Heck, it's worth one and another as a backup if you lose the
first! ; )
