Pentel 102A comapred to 101

I got around to looking at some things that came in the last shipment from Zen. Included was a 102A. Sometimes we get a surprise.when we buy things, even with pictures. This is one of those times.

First, this pencil is alot smaller than I expected. I was thinking it would be about the same size as a 101.

The tip and cap look like they are brass. Also it has no clip. This is one for the book.

Length: 101 133.5mm 102 121mm
Diameter 101 9.2mm 5.1mm



Here are a couple of my 101.

The body of 101A is slightly longer and has way more defined hexagon shape.

The 102A is also very hexagonal. The edges of the sides are sharp. It kind of makes sense to give a better grip on a skinny pencil.
