Quite a nice original...

Quite a nice original addition to a 2 mm leadholder collection. Both the push
advance wooden leadholder and its leadpointer are unique looking and function
reasonably well. Personally I found the section where the conical metal tip and
the hexagonal barrel meet to be a bit uncomfortable, for the wooden corners
stick a bit beyond the metal piece. Slipping a plastic pencil grip over the
area easily solves that problem. There was a slight rattling of the interior
lead chamber when shaking this pencil. I tried taking it apart to see if I
could tighten it, but the metal components just kept rotating within its wooden
sheath. If you are a fan of this type of sketching tool, it is certainly worth a
try and getting on its looks alone.
