    This stuff deserves a thread.

    The best clutch pencil

    Spanky's weapons grade mechanical pencil is a beauty.

    Rotring are all beautiful, especially the older stuff.

    Let us cavort in our pencil cases and rejoice! (also I demand an Art category).

    I'm rocking a Pentel P209 as my daily scribbler. Had it years, love it.

    The only thing that made going back to school bearable was being allowed to run down the stationary isle in smiths with gay abandon.

    Uniball EYE micro all the way for me at the moment.

    My biggest weakness is paper, particularly in blank book form. I have a Drawer of Shame at home full of the bloody things.

    I actually work for a big stationary and office supplier so I know my shit and the P209 is a fine click pencil.

    Fucking massive plus one to this thread. The OT hates my obsession with bringing home new mechanical pencils, pens, holders, etc.

    I'm 9 minutes too late - you have to be pretty quick on the snark trigger round these parts.

    I've got that clutch pencil, but unfortunately it's pipped by the staedtler as that's got a sharpener built into the cap.

    Check out my fucking rotring pencil, i stole this off a creative director in 1996, he ain't ever getting it back not with it's sexy fucking spring button which slides like nolans cock up morriss chunky hole(with extreme gaping ease).

    It would surprise you just how much I can't spell. It's a gift.

    Thats a beautiful image (the Nolan/morriss one).

    I use the staedtler clutch too, I've got a couple so that I don't have to change leads as often and it makes sharpening faster.

    The gnurled grip(or however you describe it) on the staedtler attracts filth though, it's a manky lookin bitch.

    The Faber has a better weight to it, I got around the sharpener dilemma with one of these.

    I used to like the Tikky line of Rotrings, but I found they fell to bits pretty quickly.

    I love Rapidograph's - got a set from the late 60's/early 70's that I cleaned up and got working again. Very nice, feel a bit smoother to use than the modern isographs I've got, maybe they've just been used more though.

    Yeah, lovely. They've got a brilliant retro range as well that I keep staring at.

    Yeah the faber is better for proper drawing, feels less like you're holding a technical drawing implement. I've got this clutch pencil sharpener, it's teh sex.

    It's cool it's got a sort of conical sharpening stone on the inside and you just spin it around it's edge, makes a erection inducing grinding noise.

    Cool. I believe it's the silver pencil from the Ivanhoe range. My work gives them out as 5-year employee gifts. Then if you stick around for 10 years you get the biro, then I think the fountain pen at 15 years

    Rotring sounds like an STD.
