$30 for a mechanical pencil? For that price, I'd expect packaging and extra components. They look like something you can get from Alibaba for well under $1.

NYC must have some serious inflation issues!

Must be one of those artisan pencil places in Brooklyn. I dont know what id do without my gluten free biodegradable paint bamboo pencil infused with lead that hewn from rocks in the swiss alps.

So I went online thinking I could find some of these pens at a cheaper price. Nope.

The one I wanted was I think ~$30 and is not available in the US, or at least any online US store.

Kaweco's not much cheaper on US Amazon:

So I Googled, why is Kaweco so expensive?

Anyways, it was fun trying all the pens and writing the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog umpteen times. I bought a "piece of crap" $3 pen, lol.

It's the McNally Jackson store near the NYU campus.
