I didn't really expect much from an regular old school pencil, but as always Tombow never fails to disappoint. I found myself entrenched with statistics notes this week and the Tombow came through. My only complaints were that the graphite, because it was soft, wore down pretty quickly and I required a bit more sharpening than I would have liked. The eraser on the pencil wore down pretty quickly and left a lot of crumbly shavings, but I did like the nice touch of matching the ferrule with the foil stamping on the pencil.
I gave this pencil such a high rating because even though it wore down pretty quickly, I could see myself ordering a gross of this pencil and using it every day. Head over to JetPens if you are interested in picking up a few!
