Pur-r-r-r-r-fect! I ordered a pack of these leads on my last order, and was
surprised to find a better lead than I expected! (Except that there were only 8
leads in a pack that was supposed to have ten.) My next order will include three
packs, which may last me about a year; and I will reorder when I open the last
My local art shop stopped carrying non-repro blue mechanical leads six years
ago. The owner said there was no longer any company making them. Her standard
lie that meant, "Nobody but a few of you commercial art weirdos uses this, so
I'm not carrying it any more." I showed her the pack and she said she didn't
have a connection to buy them. I couldn't help noticing that at the time she was
standing in front of a display of pens and pencils, that included many Uni-Ball
items. If she didn't own the largest art store in town, I wouldn't patronize her
Since she took over the store seven years ago she also discontinued Pantone and
Lettraset products, choosing to sell to the crafter/hobbyist and student markets
in deference to the professional artist market.
