after a few weeks of use, i've noticed that the barrel near the eraser end has
split, i'm not sure if it came this way, and i just noticed, or if it just
formed a stress crack. I never use the erasers on my pencils, so its not likely
that it's what caused the crack. the plastic used for the pencils shaft is
fairly thin and soft, so i suspect it's a defect in the materials used. still a
great pencil, but for the money, a better grade plastic of even a metal shaft
would have made this particular pencil a lot more durable.
