Fürst 5.6mm LeadholderThe first thing I thought when I saw this leadholder for sale was, “That’s a huge lead!” and at 5.6mm, I have never seen one like it before. I bought it in the Deutsches Historisches Museum in Germany, and like it very much.

The supplied lead is fantastic - a very soft lead (2B according to the manufacturer’s website) that does not smear very easily. Up top, the pushbutton twists off to reveal a sharpener - convenient!
Overall, I would highly recommend this leadholder to anyone who sketches or draws - it is a great tool to have!
Pros: All metal body, solid feel, great soft lead, octagonal body, built in sharpener
Price: about USD $11.60, € 8,90
Thanks again Vikram. Hope you are happy with your week.
