I use this product for everyday writing in addition to Word Find/Sudoku puzzles. The 1.3mm lead is great, doesn't break easily and writes dark. The eraser erases cleanly, lasts a long time and doesn't smudge. I can get Pentel 1.3mm lead refills and Paper Mate Tuff Stuff Eraser Refills (2/Pk) Item 788364/Model 64881 at Staples. I would like to see Staples stock their own brand for the 1.3mm lead and twist eraser refills. It would be nice to offer this particular Mechanical pencil in different barrel colors (in addition to blue). Suggested colors such as red, yellow, black, orange, green, purple and white. This mechanical pencil is good quality and reasonably priced. This mechanical pencil is great for kids learning how to write as well as for business &/or personal use.

Purchased this pencil for my daughter who likes a#2 sized pencil. Pencil is acceptable for everyday use, however, staples does not carry either the lead refills nor the eraser refills. You can substitute the lead refills made by pentel, however, there are no eraser refills available for this pencil..... so its going to be rather useless when the original eraser is gone.....what were you thinking staples?

Love, Love, Love this Pencil

Comments about Staples® Mechanical Pencil Starter Set, 1.3mm:

I would give it a higher rating if I could. These mechanical pencils are perfect for use in the classroom. When giving test, the larger lead doesn't break and it can be seen without my glasses on. I love them. None of the kids have anything like these so I know they are mine if someone tries to swipe them. I also bought some for my daughter who is in high school. She loves them too. The only problem is that the only place to get them and the lead is on line. Otherwise, the pencil is great. The eraser lasts a long time too.

    Comments about Staples® Mechanical Pencil Starter Set, 1.3mm:

    I haven't used the pencil much but when I have I love the fact that the lead marks a nice fine line compared to a carpenters pencil. Comes with extra lead and erasers which is a bonus.

            This pencil is great for those of us who
            are getting older and/or have arthritis or
            other issues. Easy to hold. Leads don't break
            easily. Writes w/ a nice easy to see line.
            Wish they were still stocked in the stores.

              Comments about Staples® Mechanical Pencil Starter Set, 1.3mm:

              Some reviews on this item mention that they can't find lead refills for this pencil. Maybe that was true several years ago, but it's not true now. Staples carries the refills and at a good price too.
              Also, some people here complain that Staples doesn't have eraser refills for this pencil. That does appear to be true, but I discovered that Pentel Clic Eraser Refills fit this pencil! That's Staples item #270793. Those are longer than what this pencil will hold, but if you take a sharp knife or x-acto knife and cut the Clic Erase refill approximately in half, it fits! I don't know but maybe Staples did this intentionally but just isn't advertising it.
              Anyway, I love this pencil and love the 1.3 mm lead size!
