One of my more recent obsessions as of lately is the Zebra mechanical pencil you see above. They were introduced to me by my amazing assistant Sarah whom I had over at Causecast. These things are cheap and plastic, but they’re designed pretty perfectly. They’re not too big and not too small, come in black and white, and have a great eraser to them.
You can get a 28 pack with both black and traditional yellow pencils for $10 on Amazon.
