I worked as an engineering intern for a couple of summers when I was in college. I shared a cubicle with a draftsperson named Laura. She was obsessed with two things - being part of an outlaw motorcycle gang, and her drafting materials, especially her mechanical pencil. I liked her very much, but one time I made the mistake of borrowing her pencil while she was on a cigarette break. When she came back and discovered me using it she was so mad I thought she was going to stab me with it. I remember her describing the pencil as her "bread and butter." I promised I wouldn't use it again and we got along wonderfully for the rest of the summer.
I'm 99% percent sure the pencil she owned was an Alvin Draft-Matic 5mm. They are only $(removed) on Amazon, and reviewers love them. I just bought one. I can't wait to use it without getting hollered at.
If you want to be truly-bad ass, you can get a set of 3 in various lead thicknesses, stored in a "leather-look" pocket pouch.
Bobby Duke carved a pencil into magnificent recursion. He calls it “Pencil Inception.”
Organize your pens and pencils rather than poke holes in your pockets!
