    Can we talk about mechanical pencils?

    Have a couple, one with colors. I dobby remember if they had a special name, but were still available in the late 90's. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    It's a fine nib in the Lamy, but that's fatter than the Pilot fine... It was also the black with black nib version. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Wow. Your experience with a Safari and mine are completely opposite. It is one of the two smoothest pens in my small collection. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    I had a Pentel Kerry several decades ago. Nice pencil. Eventually, the cap would not stay posted when extending the lead.

    Can we talk about mechanical pencils?

    They have .2mm leads now?!? Sheesh! No experience, but if you rotate the pencil while drawing to maintain a consistent line width, the edges may feel weird - I would see if there is an art supply that has them and would let you use it for a few minutes.

    That's right - white was the .5... My .3 has the same fix applied, but I used aluminum tape... :)

    Can we talk about mechanical pencils?

    If you can find them, the classic KOH-I-NOOR Rapidiomatic series in .3, .5, .7, and .9 mm leads was my favorite. Chrome knurled grip section and hardness indicator. Smooth action. I'll add a pic of my .7 in a minute.
