Hello, new member here. Although I do use fountain pens regularly, mainly a Lamy 2000 with a Fine nib, I'm more fond of mechanical pencils, specially the ones with interesting mechanisms and "quirks and features" as Doug DeMuro would say. I'll start uploading here if anyone's interested, and, if you'd like to see more photos, I post regularly on my Instagram focused on stationery (@mchpncl). Here's my beat up 800. I've been using it on a daily basis for around 4 years now, and I'm always carrying it in my pocket. I hope you guys enjoy the macro photos!

Isn't a pencil kind of a pain to use for things? You can't legally sign anything in pencil.

 

I love my m800 as well, but I do kind of prefer the balance of the 600, though if it was in a pocket all the time, that retractable point is mandatory. I just wish it came in 0.3mm.

 

Now rotring just needs to make a twist-extend eraser like those cheap garbage pentel's. I'm getting tired of tiny rotring erasers.

I'm an Architecture student so I'm constantly sketching, and I do not enjoy doing that with a pen haha. Also, I don't use the erasers on any of my pencils. I just use a Pentel ZE31 "clic eraser".

I use the same eraser, but I miss the convenience of just spinning the pencil around to erase.
