It's just for writing, was looking at some at CVS, they want a dollar.

I know arfcom like's PSA,

But spends upwards of $1,500 on anything from bikes to wallets.

Ask about $30 G-shocks, and you get a recommendation for a $7,000 rolex.

But is it possible to get a practical suggestion from Arfcom?

Go to a store that sells pencils...
Buy the pencils...
Sharpen when necessary...

Hope this helps.

Ticonderago #2. We but them by the truckoad at work. My boss doesn't do computers and writes with them and leaves them in a box when he wears out the eraser. We might have 25 pounds of pencil in a box each month to take home or do whatever.

So you start a thread on bikes, asking what to get and don't like the fact people didn't say what you were wanting to them to say so now you're turning that into a passive aggressive mockery of your own failed bike thread? Are you butt hurt no one said the box store bike you liked was worth buying?

Mirado black warriors.

Silky smooth writing. Low cost. Best bang for the buck going. To get someting better you need to step up to the artisan pencils with the rectangular erasers.

The thing is, once you've spent some time with a budget pencil, you quickly find it's limitations. It's really is a matter of buy once, cry once.

If you're looking for a reasonable mid-range pencil without getting into "silly money", I'd recommend a Graf von Faber-Castell as a decent entry-level model. Anything less and you're basically wasting your time and money.

If the eraser is rock hard, it will not erase shit and well smudge badly.

Sharpening pencils is a zen thing, you'll never be tier one till you can open a box of #2 virgin pencils and using only your hands and a scripto sharpener, make the finest point ever on it. Never buy presharpened, that Chinese 4 yr old working for 18cents a day isn't going to produce the perfect point.

You asked a simple question about a mountain bike and got honest answers that would have kept you from cracking your skull on a tree. Ride your Huffy, shoot your Hi Point, and draw nekkid pictures with your cheap fucking pencils. Quit bothering the fine folks in GD with your idiocy.

Pentel drafting pencils - .5mm in the shop, .9mm on the worksite. When eating a couple times a day and sleeping indoors depends, in part, on cutting to a line, you want a good line. Staedtler white erasers because you want the bad lines to go away - completely.

Yeah, that's key. A good eraser is worth its weight in gold. The erasers on the end of cheapo pencils are basically useless. You really do need a separate eraser.

I have almost a whole box of skillcraft #2 preban pencils I'm saving for my retirement. The real lead pencils are in a different class than these graphite sticks that you can buy now. How said box of pencils from the US Army were transfered into civilian hands I didn't ask, but I have a bill of sale. It's written in pencil too.
