Low ink!

Time for a new printer cartridge. And a new pencil.

Four, Five


The big black triangular pencil writes fine. I could see using it but it has too many challenges to be used as my pocketmod pencil. It's just too darn big. I can't use my pocket clip on it and I have to have a certain sharpener for it. But it is sitting in a place of honour; the pencil trough on my keyboard at work.

Dixon Tri-Conderoga

Once again it is time for a new pencil. I wanted to try something different than my usual Palomino and was given this Tri-Conderoga by my daughter. It looks promising with an easy to grip triangular cross section and and easy to grip rubbery surface. And it is very distinctive looking with it's black finish and gold markings. I can't wait to see how it writes.

This entry was going to feature a writing comparison between the new Tri-Conderoga and the Palomino but, darn it, the Tri-Conderoga won't fit in my usual sharpener. I even tried an electric Boston sharpener. No go. I'll just have to wait to see if any of the sharpeners at home will work.

Stay tuned for an exciting writing comparison next week. I know you all just can't wait.
