I'm still working my way through the box of Pilot art supplies that Amy and Robin at Pilot Pens sent. I figured I would combine the following three mechanical pencils in the review since they all use the same size lead (.05mm HB).
(As always click on any of the pictures for a larger view.)
Second is the Pilot G2 .05mm mechanical pencil.
The last one is the Pilot H-325 mechanical pencil.
Here is the Pilot ENO .05mm HB lead refill.
I also received this box of replacement Pilot mechanical pencil erasers and needles.
Closeup of the Pilot .05mm HB lead line.
All three mechanical pencils worked well. The .05mm HB lead didn't even break once while using the pencils, which is unusual because I don't have a light hand while drawing. The REXGRIP was my favorite, followed closely by the G-2 and then the H-325. Any of the three would be a great pencil to bring along for sketching. However, because the erasers are on the small side, either don't make any mistakes or be sure to carry along some refills.
Thanks again to Amy and Robin for sending these out. Click here to see the entire line of Pilot products.
