I can always count on Jet Pens for new and difficult to find leadholders in many different sizes other than the classic 2 mm lead size. Given my fondness for collecting and sketching with clutch pencils, I treated myself to this elegant 5.6 mm E+M Workman Pocket Clutch leadholder with matching lead pointer. Sadly I seem to have lost my red one after my latest two moves. As much as I like this compact and easy to carry sketching tool for doodling on the go, lately I tend to keep it at my drafting table or in my collection storage drawers. They are rather easy to misplace since they are so small, and I recently had to frantically retrace my steps searching for a "lost" Scribbler for two days. Luckily I had just dropped it at my brother's living room. If you do not like the feeling of losing a moderately priced clutch pencil either, you might want to consider a value-priced option like the 3.8 mm Pilot Croquis for regular field use. Its light weight plastic construction make it impervious to rain and wet conditions, and its 3.8 mm lead size is fairly resistant to breakage. Loaded with a Caran D'Ache Technalo watersoluble graphite or a heavily pigmented Museum lead, its expressive potential is virtually endless.Copic mini wallet with my loose skin tone Copic Sketch and blender markers and some loose multiliner pens and Wide marker that did not have a permanent home yet. While I like how well organized and secure these tools look in this zippered nylon case, I find its elastic holding loops a bit tighter than I like. I hope they will loosen up some after further use.
