    MY pencil.

    I've guarded this pencil for 25+ years. I've tried other mechanical pencils but nothing matches up. My blue 7mm is fortunately distinctive enough that no one can make off with it and claim it as theirs since it's missing the cap for the eraser. The weight and feel of this pencil are PERFECT. Of course I suppose I could buy another one but what's the fun in that? Much more fun to obsess over my one special pencil.

    Pentel 0.9mm Sharp Mechanical Drafting Pencil

    I have loved using this pencil type for years. The thicker 0.9mm lead does not break as easily as the smaller diameters. This pencil is a rather durable item, but occasionally I manage to drop it on its point and bends the tip. It would be nice to be able to get replacement tips for these pencils instead of having to buy a whole new unit.
