, January 2, 2013
I bought this because I had read reviews about how awesome Hinodewashi erasers
worked and I needed a replacement for my Staedtler Mars Plastic pen-style eraser
which is difficult to find refills for anymore. I did not have a problem with
the eraser advancing when I clicked it as another reviewer did--it always
worked. However the cleats are not firm enough to hold the eraser in place and
it does slide back into the barrel if you bear down hard. It does erase very,
very good without having to press down that hard in the first place. Although I
prefer pen-style erasers, anyone else should probably just buy a block
Hinodewashi eraser instead.
