Often, people ask me what pencil I use to draw and sketch (by often, I mean nobody, ever). So here is my current favorite tool, recently received via Kickstarter. If you have a hankerin’ to put lead on paper, the Penxo pencil is for you. Minimalist, perfectly balanced perfection. Combine it with Koh-i-noor’s 4300/24 2mm lead for black, non-smearing goodness.
A great unadvertised feature: it’s also a pen! Simply slip a standard D1 pen refill in place of the lead.
