Reader Reviews

A comfy pencil that stays where you put it

Review Summary

What, you thought all pencils were built the same? Nay, nay my friends. Dixon has a line called the Tri-Conderoga. This pencil is roughly triangular in cross section. Besides being supremely comfortable in your hand it also sports a non-obvious advantage. By being triangular it means that the pencil won't start rolling and wandering all over your bench when you set it down.
It's also pretty comfy behind your ear, by the way. Yeah, it's the little things that can make you happy. It fits into a standard pencil sharpener (presuming you're not going to reach for a knife to whittle the end yourself) and it's standard #2 lead. And at a little over $7 for a dozen of them they're a bargain.

Perfect Pencil for Woodworking

Review Summary

I agree with the previous reviewer. In addition to what was said, the lead isn't fall out after you sharpen it. The lead although it may be a standard #2 it stays sharper longer and it seems stronger than other brands I have used. After years of searching, this is my preferred brand.
