True Heroes do math with a fountain pen , it makes you doublecheck as you go. And the scribbled out answers add class.
That being said, I am looking for a nice mechanical pencil, aluminum body, preferably aluminum knurled grip, that will last (and not die on me). I prefer a finer line so .5mm would be preferable. The rotring 600 looks like my ticket, but even the japan production ones are in the $30 range, which is a little steeper than I'd like, I AM a college student after all. I'm trying to find the line between "buy nice or buy twice" and "flushing money down the toilet"
