3.0 out of 5 stars
Not as good as it was., 6 Feb. 2014
I bought one of these 3 years ago and I love it. I just bought another for a friend but the design is slightly different than my original. You can't tell from the image. The raised dots in the one I have are very rubbery and 'grippy' which is what I like about it. In the new pencil they are not as raised, rubbery or 'grippy'. The pencil feels slightly cheaper and not as heavy. Also the lead that comes with it isn't of the quality that I have in my old pencil which will be Faber Castell. Its scratchier and lighter.
The pencil arrived in a little generic plastic bag. For some reason I expected it shrink wrapped or in some official packaging. Its a minor detail and good for the environment but something to consider when buying as a gift.
