My favorite pencil ever....
, May 26, 2012
My favorite pencil ever. I've used (as I like pencils) probably most mechanical
(and wooden) pencils available mostly from Germany and Japan, two countries that
produce quality products, costing from few dollars to over $50 each but, I
always come back to this classic pencil.
It just becomes part of my hand with its lightness and shape, I can use it all
day while most other pencils I either get uncomfortable or bored after some
I mostly use 0.3mm and 0.7mm so I can have two different thickness in lines (0.5
and 0.7 is too close for me) but 0.5 and 0.9mm can be used for this purpose too.
0.3mm pencil (brown barrel) is currently not distributed by Pentel USA but is by
web shops, especially if you order from Europe or Asia. eg, pixiemall (Korea) or
stationeryart from Hong Kong and many Japanese sites. 0.3 (p203) is probably the
best 0.3mm pencil ever made. I'm surprised JetPens does not carry it yet.
