Pentel..A Great Mechanical Pencil!
Comments about Pentel® Twist-Erase® Mechanical Pencil; HB-Soft; 0.9 mm (Dia); No. 2 Lead; Black Barrel; 12/Pack:
I have been using Pentel mechanical pencils for more than 35 years. For most of that time I used the red barrelled PD349T Pentel, also a 0.9mm automatic pencil. That model, the tip used to come off in my pocket. Then after I had used the pencil for a while, when I was writing the lead pushed back into the pencil rather than being held steady by the pencil. This new Twist-Erase Mechanical Pencil by Pentel seems to have overcme those problems. The tips are set more firmly into the pencil mechanism and it is almost impossible to push the lead back into the pencil unless you push down onto the top of the pencil. Also, the new twist erase is about 1 1/8 inches long compared to the old erasers which were about 1/2 inch in length.which is deceiving since the usable pportion of the old style erasers was only 3/16 on an inch. The new ewraser loks lioke it can be used done until the very end, but I haven't gotten there to find out yet.
