When I found that iPenstore had Worther Shorties I immediately orders seven in different colors. I gave four away but still have three in reserve. They're awesome little clutch pencils with a simple mechanism that fit in your pocket without taking up a lot of room.

Mitsubishi Uni B lead holder and a
Caran d'Ache 0.5 mechanical pencil.
The Shorty's 3 mm lead in comparison to a 0.9 Pentel,
and a 2.0 Staedtler lead holder.
The Shorty uses a generous 3mm lead.
My original Shorty stays in my studio,
and the fresh troops hit the road with me.
