Fantastic product, every self respecting DIY dabbler requires these
on 20 February 2015
Dura Lead is fantastic, a "big boys" lead pencil that doesn't need constant resharpenings or those annoying injector lead pens that constantly snap as soon as you apply pressure to it and they usually don't come in different coloured leads either - sure you can get colouring pencils but they're usually waxy and unfit for purpose generally.
This shouldn't turn into a review for the actual Dura Lead pencil though because that is a separate product which you should totally check out because it's really damn good, even for things unrelated to DIY marking and planning, such as artwork.
Dura Lead lasts for a very, very long time. I've not gotten through the lead that came inside the original pencil yet - and this refill comes with a jar filled with five extra. The price is great for the value and long term use you are going to get out of them.
Very impressed with this product, and I wish I'd found the Dura Lead pencil a lot sooner than I did.
