@ Brian I use mechanincal pencils most of the time too. I like the old style Pentals. I have the double tip pencils all around the shop for “general” marking and use the mechanical for “precise” marking. :)

@ Alexandre My whole shop is a safety hazard! The pencils are the least of my worries. ;)

Looks to me like twice as many points to re-sharpen.

And they will last twice as long before they need to be resharpened too!

Wow, so the great solution to not having enough sharp pencil tips is to just sharpen more pencil ends!? I never thought of that.

Why not snap the pencil’s in half… And you get 2 pencils instead of 1!
Then, sharpen all of them, you get mUCH more points :P

If it works for you that’s cool but I find having 3 or 4 pencils around works for me and I have a great pencil holder
