What is a mechanical pencil used for?
Mechanical pencils are designed to create fine and precise lines, without the hassle of needing to sharpen your pencil. The compact metal body and precise lead point allows for accurate drawings, sketches and writing.
Are mechanical pencils better?
It depends on your personal preference. Mechanical pencils are perfect if you like fine and detailed drawing and writing. They are also very durable and can be more convenient for those who don't like sharpening pencils. But you may opt for an art pencil or graphite pencil for shading.
What are clutch pencils used for?
Clutch pencils are similar to mechanical pencils and lead pencils, except they contain thicker lead that is ideal for sketching and shading. This is a popular option for drafters and builders because they prefer the thicker point without having to sharpen their pencil. If you prefer the slim and compact design of mechanical pencils and would like more depth for shading, this might be the perfect choice for you!
