>You're a fucking idiot. 40$ for a thing that can last you a lifetime if you're careful with it isn't expensive especially if you enjoy writing.

Maybe you should look in the mirror pal, you're a fucking joke if you waste 40 dollars on something that "could" last you a lifetime, oh wait you won't.

Why? Because they'll have newer models coming out that you'll buy as well, so your validation of the product goes down. I enjoy writing with any piece of shit mechanical pencil from BIC or paperclip.

Trying to justify wasting over 20 bucks for a damn writer stick. You fucking idiot.

The 500 ? It's basically the same pencil just that the body of the 500 is made out of plastic (tip is still made of metal). It's up to preference I guess but the 500's center of gravity is way closer to the tip.

After a while you'll be surprised you even considered 40$ "a lot" for such a fine piece of writing. I'd say go get it, I for one didn't get buyers remorse after I got it and I get it after most my buys (I like to search a lot and I'm nitpicky) but then again I also like how it looks a lot. So if you really like it, I'd say go for it.

Rotring 800 doesn't break lead if you tighten the gold tip on the mechanism. Also, switch to a hard lead.

I have a shit ton of mechanical pencils

Pentel everything
(P207/205 still gods)
Uni Kurutoga normal & pro
Staedtler 925-05
OHTO Super Promecha
Rotrings

etc. etc.

Best ones for me are the Pentel P207 (which I used for years), Rotring 800 (absolute godtier due to weight in hand).

Pentel Smash is surprisingly good. OHTO is weird but nice. Kurutoga has that great mechanism but unfortunately needs to come with a metal body. Staedtler 925-05 is probably the best in its price range after the Pentel P205/207.

Get yourself some 2B/4B lead. Get yourself some nice paper like Rhodia.

Most of all, get yourself a serious form of work for these instruments. Kinda fucking lame to have a mech pencil without an application. It's not like a Montblanc/Parker that a rich guy uses to sign documents. These are for work

>wasting your time making mayo when you can just buy it

I own this pencil. Over time, the lead gets a weaker grip on the retainer, so if you write hard, the lead might push back inside the pencil (or break).

Also, the grip doesn't really work. The barrel of the pencil is still very slippery, but still not hard to hold.

Sometimes when pulling the eraser cover off, the eraser comes off with it, spilling all of your lead out.

This issues may just be with me, but it's still a great pencil and I'd recommend it for anyone. I'm using the .3mm variant.
>>

>quality ingredients

>>52334227
Bics are cheaper, but really, I just write with anything within my reach, and quite often, that ends up being some promotional pen.

Also because I tend to care more about writing itself, and the reasons why I do so, than caring about what sort of writing fedora I use.

2016 looks like it will be a shitty year if people now start gearfagging about fucking pens and pencils of all things.
