I must admit, I bought my Ohto Sharp pencil as a novelty. It’s a mechanical pencil disguised as a traditional wood pencil, and if you don’t look closely, it’ll surely fool you.
The Ohto Sharp pencil has a 0.5mm lead size with rear click lead advancement. It’s topped with a pink eraser, and refills are available.
Because of its light weight and hexagonal shape, it really has a traditional wood pencil-like feel to it as well.
The APS-280E is available in three colors – green, dark red, and brown. It’s made in Japan.
Frankly, the Ohto Sharp doesn’t provide the best mechanical pencil experience, but I still get a kick out of it when I use it. It’s not a bad pencil for the price.
There is also the APS-250N, a slightly different version with an eraser-less end cap.
