the best pencil in the world

For many I was hooked on the Dixon Ticonderoga #2, it was the best pencil in the world. After all it said so right on the box. Recently I have been plagued with lose ferrules, missing erasures and gritty graphite so I started investigating new pencils. I have found that for the price, the Dixon Ticonderoga #2 is probably the best pencil world. However if you have a lot of money to spend on disposable writing instruments the Farber-Castell 9000 Pencil which retails for just over a $1.00 is probably one of the finest pencils that I have had the pleasure to use. California Republic has a line of pencils called Palomino that retail for just under a $1.00 that are very close to the Farber-Castell 9000 and the Palomino touts sustainability.
