    hmm, there was a special ed kid at my high school long long ago that used to draw amazing flowers and plants with a tool just like this. Only he used the lead by wrapping them in masking tape. I remember the teacher trying to find him other pencils and charcoals to draw with, he only wanted the wrapped leads in tape. I wonder what happened to him, this would be the perfect tool for him.

    wow. impressive demos.

    2 things that would bother me…
    1. if i dropped it and the leads snapped;
    2. between shading, and fine line-work- i’m sure that nice angled edge will wear unevenly?
