Jet Pens acquisition might very well be the best-looking pencil holder I have ever come across. It was love at first sight when I first spotted this neat pencil accessory in a Pencil Talk post a few years back, so I was quite pleased to finally find it stateside. In addition to working both as a pencil stub extender and a pencil point protector, it features an extendable twist-advance cap eraser, pocket clip, and lead degree indicator (covering the range from from 2H to 4B including F). Users of premium and vintage wooden pencils would likely find this stylish tool quite pleasing to hold and effective in handling stubs 3-4" in length. It features a matte silver finish, and its brand and degree markings are subtly etched in a glossy shinier finish. The pencil stub is easily secured by tightening the lightly textured grip around it. Its tooth provides a firm grip without being excessively abrasive like the knurled metal grips of many leadholders. Good balance of looks and functionality. Highly recommended.
