What is your opinion of the quality of this item?
The beauty of a pencil is that they can't freeze, making them a smart addition for every day carry. This set is well made.
You can use the cap with ordinary pencils, which is nice since the available refills are a little costly. Proper length is about 2 inches less than a standard pencil. The only problem I found is that some pencils don't insert in the cap as smooth as the ones that came with the set, but in that case I just choose a different pencil or cut off the eraser. The sharpener works well, and is available separately so this set up will last for years.
