    • great buy

      I am a teacher, so I write a LOT during the day. These fat pencils areGREAT!!! I bought one a couple of years ago at a store, but can't find them in stock anywhere anymore. Overstock had, by far, the best price around!! Very satisfied!!

    • Great writing instrument at a great price

      beautiful in line and function, ergonomically built grip makes it easy to write without cramping. smooth delivery of the lead to paper makes it a pleasure to use, the materials are both rugged and graceful in design. A wonderful product for the writer's arsenal of instruments.

    • Horrible.

      Mechanical pencil tips come off after just a few clicks of the pencil base to raise the lead. I bought the pack of 6 pencils and it has happened to three of them already...assume it will happen to the others as well. The pencils are useless.

    • Ph.D. Pencil

      I love this pencil! I don't believe this particular model is being sold in stores anymore - at least I can't find it - and over the past few years I have found it to be the most reliable and comfortable mechanical pencil out there. The newer models have cheaper plastic parts, replacing the metal ones on this model. I still have the one I used on an archaeological dig 7 in Greece years ago; it's beat-up, but it survived and still works. I was thrilled to find an opportunity to buy them in quantity and at such a ridiculously low price. Thanks!

    • Best fat pencil on the market

      The PHD is the best fat pencil going. It's size alone makes long writing assignments easier and the triangle shapes padding just adds more comfort. These pencils hold up well and the non-covered eraser is very convenient for quick touch-ups or corrections.
