Ever since I've been...
, February 7, 2012
Ever since I've been retroverting back from typing on a laptop for the past 5
years to writing notes using a pen and paper, I've been on a quest to find a
"fabled" good pencil. In the recent months I've been using some Ohto, Zebra,
Pentel pencils purchased from Jetpens or in the stationary section of Japanese
stores around me. After reading on how well-weighted, balanced and
well-constructed Rotring pencils were on various reviews I decided to jump on
the wagon and try a few of them out. After a few weeks with the 800, 600, and
500 I must say the one I end up using the most is the 500. Why? The 500 is
solidly-built despite the plastic body and I find the weight balanced superior
to the Pentel Graphgear 1000 (my previous favorite). At the end of the day I can
write more without fatigue due it being lighter than the 600 and if someone
decides to steal it...at least they didn't steal my 600 or 800 that I intend
keep strictly at home.
