Hi.

Welcome to the Weekly Pencil, a weekly foray into graphite and cedar!

General's Pacific 365 Final Thoughts

It has been a great week with the Pacific.  I definitely prefer the softer lead grade compared to last week's Mongol.  I also did a lot more writing this week with the Pacific.  Between meetings, crosswords, Sudoku puzzles and journal entries, this pencil really got a work out.  The KUM Long Point sharpener really made a difference this week as well as I prefer the long point on my pencils.  The KUM Brass Wedge has its place, but I think from now on, I will exclusively use the Long Point.  One thing that was noticeable about this pencil was that it seemed more fragrant than the Mongol of last week.  I have a couple of theories on that: the Pacific is a newer pencil so maybe it retained its fragrant cedar smell or it could have been the different sharpener which shaves away more of the pencil when sharpening.  Either way, I enjoyed the rich smell wafting from my pencil shavings as a I enjoyed my favorite maple latte at the local coffee joint. 20150828_114602

I was unable to carve out time this week to work on my cursive writing, so I have no samples to show, but next week's pencil will be all about the cursive (I hope it's a good choice).  I did my normal review as always in my Public Supply pocket notebook I acquired from CW Pencil Enterprise.  Here are my final thoughts:
