Definitely a mechanical guy. As you said…always sharp. I started using mechanical pencils in college because I hated having to carry a bunch of #2s to class and have used them ever since. I used to have 6 or 7 of them laying around the shop but over time they’ve been lost or broken so it is time for another box of 12 Pentel Cometz for $12 from Amazon. Last box lasted 9 years! Cheap and functional. I find that 5 mm is too flimsy for most woodworking and 7mm is only used when I cannot find the go-to 9mm that I normally keep in my shirt pocket.
