    Those black wood pens are really cool looking, thanks for posting about them! I had no idea such a thing existed.

    I just got the Jackie Robinson volume. I haven’t sharpened any of them. I have no intentions of it.

    This is the pencil I WISH I had:





    This is what I can actually afford:





    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.



    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.

    Just got the Mitsubishi and KUM sharper yesterday. This pencil is widely praised for smooth and dark writing.

    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.
