Wow, great! And what a beautiful lettering!
To be honest, I’ve never been a fan of Venus pencils but these are something else. Large diameter core, and it writes like a U.S. No. 1, maybe something like a German 2B or so. I agree about the lettering, plus it’s got a nice coat of lacquer. I thought the ferrule was nice too—rather original-looking in a field of copycats.
The lead is great, but the ferrule is even better! Did you polish it to be that shiny?
No, that’s how they were!
I agree! I love that ferrule! Like Sean, I”m not a huge Venus pencil fan. I’ve never been much for that crackly alligator-y design on the barrel. But yeah, that ferrule! It looks like an old deco locomotive or something. :D
I just got some of the EF versions of the Velvet and it’s been nothing but love. So now I am lusting after these!!
“For directives”. I like that. I must write some directives!
Beautiful! Looks like something that will be scarce on the bay from now on!
