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.
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:
Happy penciling everyone!
