Segue Down the Analog Road: The rOtring Rapid Pro 2.0 Mechanical Pencil

Product: rOtring Rapid PRO Mechanical Pencil, 2 mm, Matte Black

I don't know much about Bauhaus School of Art and Design. I do know that they inspired the design of the best mechanical pencil that I have ever used.

rOtring has been making the Rapid Pro line of mechanical pencils since 2010. rOtring describes them as "an innovative 2mm pencil with push mechanism and fine-lead pencils with cushion point mechanism & tubular sliding point. A perfect professional tool!"

This is how it comes packaged.

This is the pencil.

Why is this special?

The feel. The weight. The quality of the engineering. It is beautiful. It is heavy. Seems to be the perfect weight for writing. All of that translates into the following: I want to use this pencil. I want to write, even when I have nothing to write about.

As you can probably tell, I love this pencil.

Recommended heartily.

While I am talking about the pencil, you can get lead for the pencil here.

You also need a pencil sharpener, and this is the best one I have seen.
