Product Description
The Perpetua pencil is a triumph in ecological and durable design, and gives a new face to "green" pencils. Made of recycled industrial graphite that is bonded with special rubber polymers to form a solid stick, the Perpetua does not smudge or mark up your hands during use like other woodless pencils and is formulated to last much longer Read More

I have a few of these...and I can speak to their performance. They do 'write'...but it's nowhere near smooth and comfortable as any other type of pencil. If you're looking for a durable pencil, one that doesn't break - and you're willing to press a little harder and deal with the significantly increased friction/drag, then these are nice. If you write a lot you could probably convince yourself to get used to it's performance. And I'm not saying it's like dragging a brick over concrete but there's a very discernable difference between this and standard pencils. While I don't write a lot, I do occasionally grab this because it does deal well with heavy handed abuse (such as I am when taking meeting or phone call notes...writing too quickly will break ordinary pencils - not this bad boy...it takes a beating). Whether it's worth 9 dollars a pencil is really up to you and your disposable income level. Good luck. One thing of note which massdrop didn't include in their description is: The pencil is primarily round but there is one flat side that prevents it from rolling (too far if bumped and if placed on an angled surface - they still roll mind you, but the flat usually prevents it from going too far). EDIT: Also wanted to point out that it leaves little bits of rubber on your page...since theoretically you're 'erasing' (as it's graphite and rubber) except that this leaves a mark...the rubber dust or remnants aren't quite as large or in quantity of normal erasing debris.

Just a heads up - I do a lot of work with graphite. We had issues with computers at work dying regularly and ended up finding out it was because 10ft away we were cutting graphite (with hand saws) - the dust was getting picked up and shorting boards. I would be SUPER hesitant to put this in a bag with any phone, laptop, electronics. I have no idea what grade graphite this is or if it's conductive - but I'm staying away.

I expect unless you're sharpening this with a nail file into your pocket you won't notice any problems. I carry a lead holder (with a big ass stick of graphite in it) and have never had any trouble with my electronics. plenty of people carry graphite-core pencils, even woodless pencils, I expect your use case is a fairly niche one.

I'm not sure what you were thinking when you wrote this...graphite dust and the tiny pathways between circuit boards is 'one thing' while having a stick of conductive material in your bag is no different than any other conductive material...ala keys or other metal pens. It's not like you're sharpening it inside your bag...and for the record I did do a continuity test on my pencil and it's not conductive (at least at the volts/amps of a volt meter continuity test). With no disrespect, I'm boggled as to what your motivation and thinking was with regard to your reasoning comparing a rubber pencil (yeah it's just rubber and graphite embedded within) with graphite dust.

Looks like they're just coloured erasers. If you have all four out then i guess it makes your desk look prettier :P

I can't find any reviews for this... I imagine that's why there isn't any interest. Was this voted for?
Singles are available on Amazon for $12.95 if anyone wants to test the waters.

How do you find out the number sold? I've never been able to find that out after the fact on these drops?
