I have been down that road. Trust me, it is not worth it. First of all, you don't need to have multiple pens and mechanical pencils on you at all times. You are probably really prone to losing them, as I was, so you think you need a bunch.

Instead, get a single, nicer pen or pencil and keep it in a bag. Since it is the only one you have and it cost four freaking dollars you won't lose it.

Also, strongly consider ditching the lanyard. You will not look back on it fondly.

I use 3x5 cards. I also keep them in a pile for each subject. After a lot of them get stacked up or the semester is over, I put them in ziplock bags and put them together with my notebooks in a box for future reference if I need it. Btw I just use regular composition notebooks for notes (graph paper ones for math), these pencils and these pens. I just have a few of them and buy the refill packs instead of all new pens. I'm not sure why Amazon only seems to have them by the dozen and doesn't have the 2 packs.

former Physics major here: Pentel P205, without a doubt.

5mm lead is perfect for crisp lines given all the calculations you'll be doing. To my hand, the GraphGear1000 is too heavy (also expensive), and I'm not a fan of metal knurling on pencils in general (sorry GG500). It's also imprtant to me that the lead be solid and held fixed with minimal play. I've heard (but not tried) that the Kuru Toga has some play in its lead. It also seems somewhat gimmicy.

The P205 is rock solid, light, and cheap. You cannot go wrong!

This Pentel 0.5mm was my girl for the last 2 years of school. Definitely a great one on a budget.

The Pentel P200 series mechanical pencils are great for writing and drawing. I use one in .5mm in High School (9th) and it works great. They will last you a long time and they are not expensive.

I wouldn't be wary of the Staedtler 925. The 925-25 and 925-35 are absolutely great writing utensils. Here is a picture of a 925-25 dissassembled. The only plastic in the whole construction is the barrel that contains the leads. Mostly all aluminum.

I would recommend the 0.5mm from my personal experience. It’s a great intermediate general-use lead and the prices are fine. One of the problems when you get down to 0.3mm is that the packages come with half as many leads as 0.5 and 0.7mm packages (Both Pentel Ain Stein and Uni Nanodia do this) so you’re paying twice as much for leads that each have less graphite. It’s easier to break the lead and easier to accidentally puncture cheaper paper when you’re writing with the lead. Larger leads really aren’t that bad, I have a dear friend who loves 0.7 mm and has no issues with using it daily for everything. He also uses a Staedtler 925 often.

The p205 was my introduction to mechanical pencils, because I found a very well loved and abused 205 covered in nicks and scratches on the floor in a hallway on a college campus and used it as my personal pencil for several years after that. Still have it, still works. Amazon currently has $7 for a twin-pack of p205s that I got as cheap but really good pencils to borrow to people during music classes.

My only issue with the p205 is I personally have very sweaty fingers and plastic tends to just get loose in my grip when I've been doing writing or math work for a while, so I ended up saying screw it and bought a rOtring 600. Its nearly all-brass construction is truly a Cadillac of a pencil in performance and price, but it's got ton of heft to it as I described earlier. It will last generations if you are careful with it though. Took my r600 apart and the chuck is a work of art. Closed chuck. And yes that is plastic, I was upset as you are but it doesn't seem load bearing and is the only plastic in the entire r600 besides the very end bit of the internal lead storage barrel.

They still make the Pentel P205... you can find it right here

Thanks for the suggestion, it looks exactly like what I'm looking for.

But how's the clip? It looks like the Pentel Mechanical Pencils which are super flimsy.

Thanks again. I'm super picky and nerdy with pens and appreciate your suggestion.

I have had this pencil for FOUR years. I gave the other one to my EE buddy because he kept trying to take mine. It makes such sweet sweet lines. :)

Also, get this eraser. I haven't used a better one in my life. It erases so beautifully. :)

Sir, you aren't answering my question.. I meant the Pentel P205. Well is it this?
