A friend gave me an "old" Esterbrook pencil. There are a few leads left in the old pencil, but they are just not "right," so to speak. Extremely "light," and the "feel" of the pencil, when writing seems like the lead is really "hard."
Does this make any sense? My friend gave me the old pencil, which is red, to match my red Esterbrook pen. (great pen, by the way!)
On the "silver top" of the pen, under the "cap," I see ---- "Use 046 lead." I have searched "high and low" for this lead, but have not found it.
Any ideas about where to find this lead? Thanks for any help you can give me, "poor earthen vessel" that I am!
