First off I would like...

First off I would like to thank Jetpens for re-stocking the E+M Move, I waited
what seemed several months to get one for myself.
A family story starts here so if you wish just skip to the next paragraph.
Before I was born and continuing today, my family has played a little game
whenever something gets sent through the mail. Inside a package there is a
little wooden mouse. There is only a single mouse so whoever "finds" it in a
package is now the keeper of the mouse. After a time, sometimes years, the mouse
turns-up in another box someplace else. The mouse is very old. It is wooden, has
a leather tail and ears with two hard black beads for eyes. It looks like it's
made from the same wood as the E+M Move Zebrano pencil! When I first spotted the
E+M Move here on Jetpens' web site, I was immediately distracted from reason.. I
had to have one!
The E+M Move is a simple design. There is no eraser and recharging is done
through the same opening through which the lead is discharged. Advancing the
lead is through twisting the two parts of the pencil, turn the wood and metal
for more lead. Sounds almost like alchemy!
You can 'free carry' this pencil in your pocket, but be careful you don't hurt
yourself when sitting, the thing is strong and well-built. You won't bend or
hurt it but it could wedge it's self such as to give you a good jab. Another
warning has to do with when and where you expose the E+M in your possession.
People are attracted to this thing like some sort of weird magnet! You won't get
much done if your 'Move" is on in public :)
I can't think of anything bad to say about the E+M Move pencil other than it's
susceptible to oil stain and other wet dirt. The wood is not sealed so this is
not a pencil you would use in the garage or someplace wet. This is not a bad
thing as it allows the owner to have other great pencils for these locations.
Thank you E+M and thank you Jetpens!
