I like my new pencil.

Lately, my kids have been pretty into the cheapo mechanical pencils they got at the dollar store a while back. Feeling a little jealous, I went on JetPens last week to find one I might like.

After reading a bunch of reviews and watching some videos, I settled on this Kuru Toga 0.5mm pencil from Uni:

It arrived late last week, and I have been writing with it for the past few days. I have to say, it’s pretty great.

I will admit that, prior to using the pencil, I was a bit skeptical of the feature that slowly rotates the lead as you use it so as continuously provide a sharp point to write with. Having used it a bunch now, though, I really appreciate this mechanism.
