A quality mechanical pencil. I recommend the Pentel Sharp Kerry ($14 on amazon). Makes writing so much more pleasant.

u/Uncle_Erik · 9 pointsr/pencils

I'm a huge fan of the Pentel Sharp Kerry. I have had one for over 20 years (back when it was called the 5) and it has held up and performed beautifully. You won't find another pencil with a cap, either.

u/omccloud · 6 pointsr/pencils

Welcome my friend, my only real advice is don't let it become an obsession, at the end if the day, the lead you choose has a far larger impact on your writing enjoyment. Getting that out of the way, I highly recommend the pentel kerry. It has the unique design of being a capped mechanical pencil which makes it completely pocket safe yet has a fixed sleeve so there is no tip wobble when being used. I find that for everyday use, 0.5 mm lead in grade B (which is slightly softer then the common HB (aka #2) grade) is a solid choice because it puts down a slightly darker line. I have had my Kerry for 11 years now and I had to get it repaired once due to my own fault. Pentel repaired it free of cost in one week.


I also suggest a Lamy Scribble if you prefer 0.7 mm lead size. It has a great feel to it, though is slightly thicker than the Kerry. There is something special about the scribble that just makes you want to pick it up and start writing with it. I will say that I do find lead breakage in the advance mechanism of the scribble more often than the Kerry.


Both are great pencils and you can't go wrong with either of them for everyday use.

Let me know if you have any questions, I would be glad to recommend some others if neither of those fit your fancy.

If you don't need a metal body I recommend one of these.

I carry this, a Fisher space pen, and a Kaweco Lilliput. They are all very close in size with the Kerry being a little longer when capped.

In that case it might interest you to know that Pentel Kerries are on sale half off on Amazon right now!

u/Pufflekun · 3 pointsr/classicrage

I actually just ordered a pencil with a cap. It's pretty cool that the button on the cap pushes down on the button to advance the lead, so you can use the pencil with or without the cap on.

FELIZ KAIK DAI!!! Sorry about your sorta depressing birthday, but I hope you make the best of your situation!

  3. welcome home

  4. Funny because I'm also going to move to a boarding school on the other side of the world from where I live now (with my parents) in a month. Its different because I'm still 14, but PM me with tips and I'll be happy to share stories!

I can't recommend the Pentel Sharp Kerry enough.

It has a cap so no lead or pointy ends poking you when it's in a front or back pocket. It's shorter in the capped configuration and longer with it open and writing with the cap on the back. It has an eraser in the cap and advances the lead when you push on the end, even with the cap on the back. It writes fantastic, feels nice, and it's the first .05mm I've owned that wasn't snapping leads every five seconds. It's very well designed, all metal construction and surprisingly inexpensive for what you get.

Pentel Sharp Kerry

Nice compact pencil that has a cap like a pen so it doesn't pike you. Fairly cheap too.

u/StoicCivil · 2 pointsr/EDC

Pentel Sharp Kerry. In my pocket all day, every day. The cap is a little odd at first but then you realize you're never going to stab your leg again.

Edit: And it's reasonably priced for a student. 4 barrel colors and 2 lead sizes to pick from.

u/photographic_mammory · 2 pointsr/EngineeringStudents

available at 0.9 as well, which I prefer because the lead never breaks.

The retracting tip is its main advantage over the p20x line, mainly because deformation in the little barrel at the pencil is the only way you can ruin that pencil. They used to come with a little pick thing that let you ram clear and straight it (it was attached to the eraser!), but now they don't sell them with that piece anymore and when the tip is bent, the whole thing stops working.

Another one I like is the Pentel Sharp Kerry pencil.


u/dic3man · 2 pointsr/japan

The Pentel Kerry series are very much in line with the budget of a a student, good quality and look quite high-end:


The Pilot Automac series are also good if you want to just keep writing without worrying about advancing the lead.

u/ImALittleCrackpot · 2 pointsr/EDC

The Pentel Sharp Kerry comes in 0.5 and 0.7 mm and has a cap so it can't stab you through your pocket.

u/rm999 · 2 pointsr/shutupandtakemymoney

Agreed, greatest invention evar. I feel like people who still use non-mechanical pencils are like people who use hotmail in 2012. Or maybe old-skool hipsters. If you want a high quality mechanical pencil, check out something like this:


Personally I am ok with these cheapos:


u/dac22 · 2 pointsr/notebooks

I use a Pentel Sharp Kerry and absolutely love it! I attached a Leuttchurm pencil loop on the inside flap of my pocket notebook cover so that I can carry it. (Just fyi, my cover is about 3.5" x 5".)

EDIT: This also doubles as my wallet and I carry it in my back pocket. I need to keep the pencil inside the cover so that it's not too wide. As is, I never sit on the pencil. I chose the Kerry for the size and durability. Seriously, one of my best purchases.

u/cheesegoat · 1 pointr/AskEngineers

I don't write a whole lot, and at work it's usually a whiteboard, but I do have a Pentel Sharp Kerry and it's really satisfying to write with. Great balance and feel.


u/awldun · 1 pointr/EDC

The Pentel Kerry is cool. It has a cap.

u/The_Happuning · 1 pointr/videos

another way to make sure you don't write on a dull edge
