Does anyone know where I can actually find a .35mm pencil in retail so I can see if I like the fineness of the lead? I really dislike .7 but enjoy .5 I think I might really like .35 but I'm afraid of breakage and such.
Hey guys, sorry, I haven't looked through the thread. I just stumbled upon here because I find the whole concept of being a pencil enthusiast interesting. I'm a student, and between headphones and everything else I can't spare too much money on pencils. I was wondering if there is a "KSC-75" of pencils, like an easily obtainable, cheap pencil. I'd also like it to be cheap because I have a good habit of losing them.
Lose a Pentel P205/7/9???? blasphemy i say. My 209, as i said, has been going strong for over 20 years now- i treat it to a new eraser every now and then, and it may be on it's 3rd body- black now from discarded 205's. If any of you are conversant with "Only Fool's and Horses", my pencil is like Triggers brush
As for 0.9mm being thick- it's all about control and pressure.
