Pentel Kerry 0.7mm - one of the more unusual, readily available, brand name mechanical pencils.
0.7mm is the sweet spot for me. I have terrible handwriting, a 0.7mm pencil is a good balance between looking too scratchy on the thinner width and too bunched up with wider ones. Here another favorite of mine, the Lamy 2000 pencil. Obviously in 0.7mm.
My first Lamy’s was the Safari pen and pencil set! It was downhill after that untill I found out about Caran d’Ache, which is about the only thing I collect now.
Being German, I know the Safari line well. It probably was the most common fountain pen when I went to high school in the late '80 - early '90. I still have multiple Safari fountain pens, but only one Safari pencil. Caran d'Ache is a great brand, I love their distinctive hexagonal silver pens.
I have been using the Pentel P205 0.5mm ever since I discovered mechanical pencils. I have them on each stationary tool, workbench, desk, and truck. Some of the leads were too soft and too weak. I settled on Pentel Super Hi-Polymer HB. Yes, cross grain in porous wood can be a challenge. The tip of the Delguard seems a little "stubby" to me. The video makes no mention of special lead, so I guess any standard lead will work.
I really have a thing about pencils. So I got a discount on this rotring. Like I need another pencil!(Image removed from quote.)
Some mechanical and clutch pencils are just so nice...you have to get a second!
Not really got to write with this one much yet it is the Kuru Toga 0.7mm but I have had the 0.5mm version for over a year and haven't had any issues with it so I am sure that the 0.7mm will be as good or better for me I did swap the greenish yellow eraser cap and end nub from this one to the blue you see now from the 0.5mm one and now it is much more pleasing to look at for me
Kuru Togas are amazing, but strangely enough I switched from the 0.7mm to the 0.5mm. Great pencils, my favorite!
