Product description

Size Name:0.5 mm

Product Description

The Pentel Ain Stein Leads are a refill lead from the high-performance family, stronger and darker than many regular leads. It is porous, ceramic cell structure provides regularity of shape and strength. The tube has an easy-open rotating lid with eye-catching vivid colours.

The Ain stein leads are highly strong and have been made by improving the performance of Pentel's existing lead in one of its most important features: Strength. A ceramic frame holds the lead firmly in place from the inside.

In pencil leads density and strength are usually inversely related. The stronger it gets the lower the density and the more the blackness, the weaker it gets.

Pentel was established in 1946 as The Japan Stationery Company and the organisation started by selling school supplies such as water colours, crayons and oil pastels. Artists, students and craft enthusiasts are able to choose from a wide variety of Pentel arts products, made from fine materials and available in different colours. Design, draw, scrapbook, paint, colour and display. Express yourself with Pentel.

I ordered these 0.7 leads for my mechanical pencils as I had run out of my stock. They arrived promptly and after taking a few seconds to realise you need to twist the cap sideways where the arrow points in order to open the box so you can access the leads it has been plain sailing. Good quality leads; as mentioned before the have not broken once and I have been able to use them with my 2 mechanical pencils for the past 3 days without any problems. At £2.82 for 40 leads (just over 7p a lead) and free delivery if you are an amazon prime member they are excellent value of money.

Im addicted to using mechanical pencils, its much cheaper than buying pencils all the time and then carrying around a sharpner for when you do need a sharp pencil.

This lead provides a nice smooth line which is nice and visible without any smudging; its also very easy to erase and doesnt leave ugly looking grey markings when rubbed off, unlike other ones.

I am so genuinely impressed with these, so much so I ordered a second pack just to keep in stock. These leads are very strong, very precise and make drawing line art a real pleasure. I bought them to replace the lead in my Bic Mechanical pencils and I would say they are even better than the originals. - Highly recommended!

These seem like good leads. Not quite as dark as I was expecting (hoping). I find different makes of lead of the same rating eg HB can differ in darkness and hardness a fair bit. These make a quite silvery mark in my opinion.

Noted my daughter's handwriting improving after going in for lead refill pencil. But getting a proper refill lead was nightmare. This is is good quality, and priced better than anywhere else in market. Go for it.
