The pencils seen below are a Caran d'Ache Technograph 777 (Swiss-made and no longer available here; maybe superseded by their expensive Grafwood line) and, in black, a US-market Tombow MONO from Japan:

The 777 felt pretty much like a normal pencil to me, but the Mono is just a joy to draw with, and a shade or two darker than Western pencils of the same grade, too, which makes it easier to scan. Today's pages were drawn with the Mono.

And yeah there the Mono was hacked to a crude point with my pocket knife 'cause it's slightly wider than a normal pencil and wouldn't fit in my sharpener (and Japanese pencils don't come pre-sharpened like Western ones do--maybe it's a samurai thing or something, I dunno). It was properly sharpened with a nifty Japanese sharpener for today's pages though.
