  Lightweight comfortable..., November 18, 2008
Lightweight comfortable pocket sketching tool suitable for quick shading especially with the softer 6B lead. It is a good value alternative to the Caran D'Ache Museum Fixpencil 44 clutch leadholder since it can also hold the 3.8 mm watersoluble graphite Technalo leads and the Museum watercolor leads. Its thicker lead size is less prone to breakage and seldom needs sharpening (so long as one remembers to rotate the pencil to wear the point down evenly). Its ergonomically designed barrel is quite comfortable for long drawing sessions and allows different grips: closer to the tip for tighter control or closer to the rotation knob for graceful sweeping lines. This would make a fine stocking stuffer for kid artists in your holiday list. Only drawback of this tool might be that its refills are rather short and packed only two pieces per $3.00 tube.
