    That's such a Maine thing..  Down East folks love that pencil!

    My family is from Maine, and they bring me those pencils.

    I'm a Pilot G2 guy, has to be black, and extra fine.
    Use a Pilot G2 in red, in fine, to note orders, 12hr chart checks.
    And Ticonderoga #2s with eraser for the chemo MARs, our erasers are gone fairly quickly by erasing administration times, so we have eraser blocks too.  Hand crank sharpeners, old school.
    And a Curaplex EMP disposable pen light with pupil gauges.  I am approaching pocket protector status.

    Pentel P207.  That is the perfect pencil.  I much prefer the .7mm to the .5mm in the P205 ..... yes, its sad I know the model number of my preferred pencil, but not my anniversary.

    There's two of us; board, t-square and triangles.  I would like one of those wheeled doo-dads that allow parallel lines to be drawn, they came out my Senior year when I was student-teaching Freshman EN Drafting ('82).

    Though I have now been retired for 12 years I still use my .7mm Pentel as well and mine is now 51 years old! How I managed to never lose it is still a mystery!

    Until a year ago whatever pens they supplied at work. Once I worked in final Plans, you can think of it as project audit, for 3 months. We were each assigned a color to use for initializing and filling out the checklists. Being the last brought in on it I ended up assigned pink ink. As a retiree I use gel type pens but I never use a pink one. On the last multipack I bought I am currently using the orange one to fill out the New York Times crossword puzzles, I can't remember where I laid the green one down.

    Still have both of mine, too; one with 2H and one with 4H leads.

    Oh and on top of that I still have my two ended mechanical - one end is red and the other is blue. These were required pencils for us auditors when I hired in at Price Waterhouse back in 1966. I still have a lifetime supply of red and blue leads! Tick marks could ONLY be in those two colors!
