This is not just a red pencil, or just another quite good red pencil. Good and
very good red pencils are plenty and so easily available... but they do not
manage to write a real red line or mark, but only reddish or very reddish at
THIS IS THE RED PENCIL. No reddish, but fully RED.
So whatever high praise I could write would fall very short: as far as I know,
this RED remains unsurpassed.
Your money would be perfectly spent, not wasted at all.
This is simply an example of a lowest quality American-made item: cheapest
plastics, no smooth operation, slippery grips, misaligned twisting tips, with
which you can only propel the leads, but not retract them!!!!!!!!!. This is why
European and Japanese writing items are so high beyond American standards. Do
not waste your money, I already did it for you.
