    Non Photo Blue Col Erase Lead for Lead holders/mechanical pencils: do they exist?

    Sorry for the long title, but hopefully this will be a pretty self explanatory thread.

    I have only found one brand of Non Photo blue lead sticks for lead holders, but could not tell if they were of the erasable type. Which leads me to believe that they are not.

    Does anyone know of any erasable non photo blue lead?

    ... yes...? At least I have a bunch, from Curry's. No idea what brand it is, but it is available. Do you guys have Curry's down in the states...?

    edit: At least, I should say, I am almost certain they are col erase, since my col erase non-photo blue pencils are the same brand, I'm pretty sure.

    But it's late and I don't have them in front of me, so I could be wrong.

    Yes they do!! Prismacolor, who makes Col Erase, makes a 2.0mm (size for lead holders) non-photo blue lead that is as erasable as it's Col Erase cousin under the Prismacolor Premier Turquoise imprint.

    And for .05mm lead, I believe Pentel makes a non-photo blue but no clue about how it erases.

    The Pentel non-photo blue erases pretty well. I use it all the time and I manage to erase it even when I go a little too heavy. Very convenient thing to have.

    Ive been looking in to the same thing. Pentel make a Blue 0.5mm, but that is not very erasable at all, so a heads up, make sure you get the non photo, not the regular one. They are quite brittle, so thats a good thing for someone who is easily heavy on lines, I forces you to lighten up and go gradually more dark.

    This would be my Pleine Air blog
