While the standard circle...
, April 7, 2008
While the standard circle style Mono Zero easily found a use in my kit, this one
is still struggling to find it's place. The flat thin shape of the eraser makes
it difficult to make sense of what it's ideal function is.
It's too wide to be precise, unless you use the corners of the eraser, in which
case it's hard to see what you're erasing. It can be used as an all around
eraser intended for a less precise function taking advantage of it's wide
coverage. In that case it's kind of a rare beast to be used for everyday use.
Keeping a healthy stock of refills might prove difficult in the long run.
Again, like the other models of Mono Zeros, the eraser does not extend to the
bottom of the barrel. It's about three inches long with a plastic lead extending
the length which feeds into the advance mechanism. While it sucks to have an
eraser shorter than expected, the quality is tops. Tombow definitely knows how
to make things disappear. Plus, it looks way cool.
