pencil fi? - Page 22

post #316 of 460
Jesus! I am simply in love with the Rotring 800! But which color should I buy, black or silver? I normally prefer black but the pictured above is simply stunning!

BTW, how good are Rotring leads? My favourite are pentel 0.5 2B.

So I've tried the rotating pencil, a 0.3 drafix from Zebra, and an Ohto Promate and man the promate kicks all the others ones ass

Has anyone tried the Pentel Graph Gear 1000? Does anyone know if the tip are is wobbly while writing due to the retractable tip?

This thread has some seriously awesome pencils!

And I always though I was spoiled with my regular wooden Ticonderoga pencils.

havent visited this thread in a while. excellent direction it has taken.

i come back with sad news though dropped one of my beloved silver rotring 600s on the floor and the nib bent. i tried straightening it out to the best of my abilities but i cant get it perfect. given the bent tip, the lead keeps breaking off after every 2cm roughly.

any suggestions on straightening it out or am i fighting a losing battle here?

i know there was talk of a group buy back in the day...i have no idea if one can even be done at this stage, i havent spoken with any vendors. just wondering if anyone would be interested in a gb. i could look into it to see if we could get any bulk discounts.

Mines does not wobble. Or, it's really hard to tell while you're writing.

I don't think so. I'm really too tired to check, but it's been fine with me.

Where do i buy a rotring 800?

I really need to know!!

EDIT: Just bought a Rotring 600 in black from eBay. Will be genuine right? £17 from Japan?

If it's from hkokoro, that's where I got my 600 from and it's perfect!

I've been using my Staedtler Mars Micro 0.5mm for god knows how long. A nice and reliable mechanical pencil is your life saver in Chem Eng!

I use one of those, they are very comfy. I did have a 0.3 and 0.5 but the nib bent on the 0.3 so i couldn't push the lead out without it snapping, not very helpful! Hence the rotring 600 I bought recently. Eventually i'll probably get a metal 0.5mm pencil but if it works. I had no idea there were so many other people who cared about which pencil they use.

Also I have had one of these for quite a while that I really like (steadtler something blue forgotten the model name and it has long since rubbed off).
