    Default The big ones...5.6mm graphite

    Here are my other 5.6mm graphite clutch pencils. And I do have a favorite one lol. You never know what it will lay down! It makes for a fun drawing session. Enjoy.

    0.5mm vs 0.7mm graphite sizes is much like 9mm vs 45acp...they both work if you know what you are doing. - me

    Thats a good choice! Wood does feel good in the hands. My son prefers wood to the metal.

    don't know, need to measure. the fat lead has hexagonal diameter.

    btw: if you like Cd'A, you'll like these:

    CARAN D'ACHE Fixpencil von -C.M.Z-

    two examples of the very first Cd'A Fixpencil from 1934.

    pencils are cool!

    C.

    ps: what is a Cd'A type 55???

    Rare to me for sure. No longer made. I have the rollerball and the .7mm mechanical pencil. They were made for a year or two. The Type 55 was a design inspiration from the 1965 Mustang gills on the car.

    Wow...I have never seen a 23 before! That is what, maybe 3 inchs tall?? That is very nice. There is nothing wrong with your collection. I wish I could find ones like that. Thanks for sharing!
