While I use my FP`s regularly I do use pencils more often for drawing & sketching.
So the desire for a reeeeally nice pencil has become a bit of an obsession with me lately.
It`s just my luck that the pencil I like the look of most is a Visconti Divina in black.
This one is horribly expensive & it also seems that the pencil was produced in far fewer numbers than the roller ball and ballpoint,
as only a few sellers have it on offer.
As to the price, I`d be willing to sell off a few FP`s to finance it.
My main worry is that it`s too large & heavy for comfortable use, especially as I`d use it for drawing rather than writing.
There`s also zero chance of trying it out in person & the resale value is probably not high (50%?).
What are your experiences with big heavy pencils, like for example a Visconti Homo Sapiens or the Parker Duofold Centennial, which, having a more classical look, I also fancy - I know it`s not as big as the Divina and very probably less heavy)?
Given the price tag I also wouldn`t mind anyone trying to talk me out of this objet d`desire
Have a nice weekend!
