Show off your pencils. Mechanical or wood case. It doesn’t matter.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180528/f57eb8371844cb0f69fd5124ace59319.jpg

So are you usung them yet? If so how are you liking them? I saw where they are making a desk set and the one I saw had three different styles/models in it. Very nice with a nicer price tag of $150.00, which was tempting.

sharpening results, caused because of different pencil qualities and different sharpeners.

Mechanical pencils I've gathered over the years since they were my primary writing instruments since high school (well, I've lost those I used in high school and college).

Nothing special, really since most can be bought at stationary stores but I love my Pentel Kerry! Been my go-to mechanical pencil for 3 years. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190218/57430c9e16f99d4e88c8535b81865449.jpg

So far this is what I have...
https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190218/1cac0b14033aa5d4dfef209e00fe735f.jpg

Top to bottom: Sheaffer Balance, Wearever, Eversharp Skyline, Zebra M-301, and Wahl Ringtop.

I've used the Zebras for years. The other pencils are part of FP sets.

During college (engineering degree) I used budget mechanical pencils almost exclusively including a Pentel Sharp Automatic (or whatever they were called in the early 90s). I wished I could remember the other brands.

Somewhere around here I have a beat up clutch pencil too. Edit: ah yes, Koh-i-noor Technigraph 5611...

Spendid pencils! Do you know who made them? Two of them are Stratford, the others are no-name. I'm partial to colorful, old, celluloid fountain pens too.

Despite being a true red ripple, this pencil doesn't appear to be by Waterman. It's quite large at 12.4cm. It was made in England but carries no manufacturer information. There is a patent number but it's a general one that applies to many different makes of mechanicl pencil.

When I bought the I thought they we’re gimmicky because of the black wood. I was wrong. They sharpen well. The wood stays nice and smooth and they look pretty good.

This is the pencil I WISH I had:

This is what I can actually afford:

https://i.imgur.com/cyw6hXW.jpg



Nevertheless I recently splurged and picked these up at Michaels (a US arts and crafts supplies store). Serviceable, although the graphite was not picked under the full moon by virgins consecrated to the Great Pencil Goddess. The eraser works quite well; not sure if I prefer it to a Pink Pearl; they're both excellent erasers and seem to work equally well. I got it at Jetpens.com.

Somehow I lost my first Kuru Toga. Grr. Anyway I decided to get a replacement and a couple other mechanicals to try from Pentel.

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200219/0901640b2396d6d6e15162c2a4e787cb.jpg

I probably could have done without the other two. I like the Kuru Toga quite a lot. Although the Graph Gear 500 is pretty nice too. The Graphlet is ok but I guess I like the heft of the others.

Such an interesting conglomerate. I didn't know they made Pencils. I knew about Cars, Electronics, Airplanes. For awhile, Mitsubishi made home stereo equipment—I have a Mitsubishi receiver from the late 70s that is quite nice.
