Mechanical Pencil Day Giveaway

So, today is Mechanical Pencil Day over at Cult Pens, and as part of the celebrations they said "Hey Dave, choose a pencil or two from our range and give them away on your blog", so I did, and I am.

I wanted to try and be as inclusive as possible so decided to select a technical drafting type mechanical pencil for those who are into precision, and a general writing mechanical pencil for those who apply their graphite in a more relaxed manner. With that in mind I ended up selecting the Lamy AL-star 171 pencil black 0.7mm and the TWSBI Precision Fixed mechanical pencil silver 0.5mm. The very ones pictured below, that you now have a chance of owning. Thanks Cult Pens.


All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post  and say which one of the two you would like to win. If you comment anonymously then make sure to also include some identifier in your comment, e.g. "I'm Laura from SIU Carbondale", or "Call me PencilPaul". The winners will be selected at random on 14 July and announced on this blog. Winners have a week to then email me back and claim their prize.

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

Hi, I'm Blackbeard and I'd like that TWISBI Precision.

I'm glad that you came back to blogging, your review of the Faber-Castell Grip 2011 made me buy one and it's my go-to Mechanical pencil for writing to this day.

Happy Mechanical Pencil Day, Dave! Please exclude me from the raffle – I already have too many mechanical pencils :-)

Alana G. said...

Wow, thanks for such a great giveaway! That TWSBI is GORGEOUS. I'd love to own one! I really like your blog, too. I followed a link from a reddit post, but I'm really interested in your mechanical pencil reviews!

Evander said...

It’s a surprise to me, but I think I’d actually go with the Lamy Al-Star. I’ve turne up my nose at Safari pencils in the past, but something about the aluminum there makes the pencil look more impressive.

I also already have a matching fountain pen (albeit in a different color) so the TESBI would be a more expensive prize to win...

Pierpaolo Bernardi said...

Hello Dave, I like the Lamy.

Cheers

Svobodo said...

Well, the rational choice would be the Lamy since its ergonomics would suit me better.
But hey, rationality is soooo uncool nowadays and while the TWSBI looks really good, I can't stand the design of the Lamy Safari family. So, the TWSBI it is!

Schrijfmaarwat said...

Happy Mechanical Pencil Day everyone! That TWSBI looks awesome.

Hi Dave,
That TWSBI would be amazing.
My wife says I have too many mechanical pencils and I am not to buy any more. So a free one would be safe to get into the house.

The Lamy is my choice.

2nd_astronaut said...

One of my best friends in primary school had a similar-looking Lamy pen (most including me had Pelikan, some Geha, but Lamy was a bit showing-off ;-) ). So I would prefer the Lamy.

Hi, I'm Vasco, from Portugal. I think I missed the chance to get a Lamy AL-star :/ I probably wasn't eligible for it anyway, but, that Lamy pencil looks so nice that it deserved a compliment.

Kiwi-d said...

Hi Vasco. Well everyone was eligible, but unfortunately you are too late, entries have closed.
