I picked up some mechanical pencils from the dollar store today. I don’t usually buy mechanical pencils because I dislike the lead to the point that I stay away from them all together. However, today I saw these and the body of them looked sleek and girthy, so for a buck, I picked them up. At the very least I could give them away as good student prizes in this week’s Sunday School.
To my surprise these pencils wrote dark and smooth! Super smooth! I prefer a dark colored lead and these wrote super dark without a lot of pressure. Plus, it didn’t smear when I rubbed my finger over it. Another plus!
Refillable, molded grip, and a smear free eraser– very true! It’s a 0.7mm HB2 lead, which is common.
Also, I have to give a shout out to our church’s teen program IAMBEREAN. They’re selling pencils for a dollar each and THEY ARE AWESOME PENCILS.
