Papermate’s PhD Ultra is a mechanical pencil priced (roughly) 3-9 dollars and a very good pencil. It is Ideal for a person with arthritis in their writing hand and an amazing pencil for its prices. It has a triangular (and comfortable) grip and a twist out eraser. Because of this eraser, you take the eraser holder out instead of just the eraser. It is refillable. I haven’t experienced any flaws in this pencil, but this could be a problem for certain people because of the barrel’s diameter. If you don’t like a very wide barrel, then this pencil is not for you. But otherwise, it is great. This pencil is rated 4 out of 5 stars. It is a high recommendation and also a nice addition to my collection.
