The Pencil-Crown is a recent development by Elegant Utility that counters vibrations that graphite makes with paper. This is due to the Hysteresis Dampening properties of Brass which in turns giver greater pencil performance. Machined out of a solid piece of brass. You will experience the following benefits.
Less pressure to create darker lines.
Greater flow in your drawing.
Less fatigue after prolonged drawing or writing.
Greater pencil balance throughout the life of pencil.
You will notice a different sound while using Pencil-Crown.
The drawing and writing experience will feel more pleasurable.
We look forward for artists and writers to give us their feedback on this product.
You will want the Pencil-Crown on all your pencils.
The Pencil-Crown is machined for a cost savings and will not fit in any of our other products. However if you have the Pencil-Pal or Pencil-Palpanion the benefits will be equal to the Pencil-Crown when only using the pencil holding part.
The Pencil-Crown was delivered promptly and with the superb quality one can expect from the crafters at Elegant Utility. This review is based on the use with a shortened / modified Blackwing Pearl. (An unsharpened BW Pearl is shown for reference.) The Pencil-Crown may be most appreciated by pencil enthusiasts that enjoy delving into the finer details of pencils. The Pencil-Crown feels slightly heavier in hand compared to the ferrule and eraser on a Blackwing pencil. I did not find the slight difference in balance on the BW Pearl to cause premature fatigue while writing or drawing. Accessorize your graphite hugging wood companion with regal splendor. Show the rest of your analog writing instruments who is king or queen of the pen(cil) cup.
