Comments on the Rhodia pencil


Tejal Kuray continues her review of Rhodia products in her LJ, this one is for the pencils. She starts off with an admission:
“I’m going to admit, right off the bat, that the reason I wanted to try one of these pencils so badly is because of the black wood color. I think that pencils with colored wood are just so cool-looking. I’m usually pretty utilitarian when it comes to writing instruments…but come on, colored wood! ..”
She noted a quirk when sharpening the pencil:
“Sharpening seems to be a little tricky. When I used my sharpener (which is a pretty damn good sharpener), the pencil sharpened very jaggedly. This didn’t bother me, since, jagged = sharp points with which to write. But if you’re a pencil perfectionist, well…maybe your sharpener will be more cooperative than mine? ..”
Noting that she hasn’t tried enough pencils to be able to do any sort of in-depth comparison Tejal concludes:
“I’d recommend it to people who like to try different types of pencils, because I do think it’s a well-made pencil.
