I totally agree that Bic pencils are "good enough" for basic sketching and drafting. I have been known to use them as functional lead storage tubes, holding somewhere around 10-15 pieces of lead for my beefier pencils like the rOtring 600.

If you are looking for an upgrade, the Pentel GraphGear 1000 is an excellent pencil for under 15 bucks.

0.7mm version

The graphgear 1000 and rotring 600 are the most highly recommended pencils on the subreddit, but if neither of these suit your fancy, jetpens has an excellent selection.

I started my engineering path last semester and learned veary quickly the need for a special pencil in coparsion to the 20 cents pieces of crap from wallmart. I've been using Pentel Graph Gear 1000 Automatic Drafting Pencil 0.7 and have been loving it sense. The head can be locked in the pencil so it doesn't stab you every time you put it in your pocket, which is nice.

You can get a Pentel GraphGear 1000 from Amazon for under $9. That'd be my vote.


But it's also hard to beat the Pentel Sharp iguy2345 mentioned. They're basic, but bombproof. I like the TwistErase, too.

Yeah no prob. I'll put them in this order: Lead Holder (very dark), sharpener (needs special sharpener, trust me you really need it), GraphGear, Copics, Chameleon, fine liners (I'll put the ones I use, but Micron's are a little more expensive option for better quality).
