Paper Mate� Infinite Lead Mechanical Pencil Set, 0.5 mm, Blue/White
So bad I had to write a review, about a pencil!
This is the worst pencil I have ever used hands down. Like the title say, it's so bad, I had to write a review about it! If I ever come across a need to torture someone, I will make them write using this pencil, until it completely runs out of lead. Being that this pencil is supposed to last for two miles, I think I would rather die than be punished like that.
Here's why I hate this pencil so:
You begin writing, it is smooth, comfortable between your fingers and well balanced. You think you could write for days with this pencil. Then you hear it. The faint snap of the lead. But it's not the tip of your pencil, it's the lead that is unseen. About a half a centimeter inside the pencil. You lift the writing utensil off the page and sure enough, the small but significant bit lead falls out. You take a calming breath and begin the clicking process to get a fresh piece down to the tip again. Finally, it arrives and you can begin to write once more. As you finish your first sentence,you hear the pop of breaking lead once more. Another calming breath and the clicking is faster than the first time. Two sentences down and again, the haunting sound is heard. You want to switch pencils but surely this pencil that cost more than a DOLLAR will come through for you so you continue. Half way down the page and the pencil has been thrown across the room and you are buried under two miles worth of half centimeter long pieces of lead and you are crying, begging for a marvelous, yellow, number two pencil that dulls after only three words because the clicking won't cease in your ears. Make it stop, for the love of all living things, make it stop!
Ok so I may have over exaggerated a bit, but it really is the worst pencil on earth.
