Think about a company, only makes pencils but amazingly perfect pencils, you can use this brands pencils for years. The pencils design is amazing. There is more expensive pencils out there but Parker pencils is better than all others. I was thinking like should I pay this much to a pencil? but it’s worth. I use it for years now and it doesn’t get any older. It may be just me but it makes my writting beautiful and makes me want to write more and more. If you are someone who writes a lot, you should buy this pencil.
