Video-Review: Pentel “Kerry” mechanical pencil (black)

The Pentel “Kerry” is a quite exciting mechanical pencil from Japan. It is very different from most standard mechanical pencils due to it having a cap, just like a rollerball for instance. This also gives the pencil a very unique design and makes it very usable as a pocket pen. I hope you enjoy the video review below!
