Black Warrior pencils are very good but are hard to find. As good as they are they were even better back in the 80's when they were made by Berol. I still have some old ones (Berol BW #372) and save them for use in a compass.
I have switched to Pentel mechanical pencils. .5mm for writing, skeching and cabinet work, .7 for carpentry work. It takes a while to get the feel for them so your'e not always breaking the leads (HB grade)
If it takes me twice as long to build something, does that make it "Half Fast" ?
I have not been able to locate a seller with any remaining stock. If you run across any, please let me know.
For what it's worth, I contacted PaperMate and their reply was as follows:
