Massive extravagance - but worth it!
By Steve C
I bought the Perfect Pencil on its own, not the desk set which I would have loved but absolutely could not justify. The pencil alone is, of course, a massive extravagance (that much? For a PENCIL???!!!!) but as others have said, what a beautiful item and it really feels wonderful to hold and write with. The fittings are suitably heavy and beautifully crafted and the inbuilt pencil sharpener and protected rubber are also works of the highest quality. I usually press really hard when writing with a pencil - it is not necessary with this due to the weight of the fittings which gives a comfortable writing pressure without too much extra from me. I also like the balance of the instrument in my hand and find even with my scrawl, there is an improvement in the end result!! I would also echo another reviewer who commented on the box that the PP comes in. It is beautifully made, well fitted with hinged lid and nicely designed and finished, with a soft three instrument insert. I am using that for my favourite Graf Von Faber Castelle pens and the PP lives in its own leather holder. All very satisfying indeed.
