I love this entire line...

I love this entire line of leads. They rarely break, and I think I have only
broken them when banging the pencil against something, not in actual usage. I
really like that the top twists open instead of detaching from the container
because I can't lose it; also, you won't spill all your leads when pulling off
the cap. The Ain Stein leads all seem to mark lighter than the regular Pentel
leads in the ugly parallelogram containers, so if you are mixing different
hardnesses of them in a drawing you may have to do some test marks to get the
darkness you really want. These are a little expensive, but I am picky about
what I draw with and I choose these consistently.
