Mechanical pencils are a favorite for students and professionals alike. Here are our notes on some of the best mechanical pencils.
Everyone in the family can add a few to their pencil holders with dozens of colorful mechanical pencils. Looking like pens, but delivering a #2 pencil, these mechanical pencils are just right – not too hard, like #2 ½ and #3 pencils, or the soft #1. The choice of students in the classroom and taking scanned tests, mechanical pencils are a great addition to your pencil pouch, case, or pocket. This package of 40 has eight of each color: purple, orange, red, yellow, and blue.
With a quick click, you can advance your lead for seamless composition and test-taking. We have all taken some fill-in-the-bubbles test and realized that we accidentally skipped a line. That’s where this mechanical pencil really shines. With a twist, the eraser comes out revealing a convenient larger-than-you-think eraser, to quickly get you back on track. The see-through barrel on this mechanic pencil lets you see the leads, so you can always add a few more if needed. Ergonomically designed for long-lasting writing comfort, this set of 12 pencils holds 0.7 mm leads.
Whether you’re using metal straight edges or templates, this longer 4mm pencil tip yields superior results. In the yellow tone we all recognize as pencil color, these 12 always-sharp mechanical pencils are easy to locate in the bottom of your backpack or bookbag. They come filled with a polymer lead that is made from 100 percent recycled plastics. We chose the standard 0.7mm leads, but you can also get fine point 0.5mm, or wide 0.9mm leads as well.
All metal construction
From budding designer to an aspiring artist, enjoy the complete pencil versatility these five pencils can provide. With an assortment of pencils and leads in sizes 0.3mm, 0.5mm, 0.7mm, 0.9mm, and 2.0mm, you can draw and design with all those thicknesses at your fingertips. Plus, they are all refillable and come with extra high-polymer ink. We love that the largest size, 2.0mm pencils, come with colored pencil leads, too! Ten more erasers are also included in this convenient set.
