One word of caution. The bullet design is such that at certain points in the metal it is very thin. It should not be an issue once the pencil is properly inserted but please use caution when putting the pencil into a tight pocket (like a back pocket in particular).

All Twist are delivered with one pencil nub loaded and two extra nubs. You will see that the non-sharpened, or insertion end, has been twisted in a pencil sharpener to create a taper. This taper allows thicker pencils, like the Blackwing 602 to insert easily into the bullet. This is only needed if you have a hard time getting a nub into the bullet (typically with thicker pencils, you will know right away if this is needed). In addition to creating the taper, we use an small knife to scrape the paint of the edges of the nubs. This allows for the pencil nub to easily twist all the way into the bullet. Your extra pencil nubs are shipped pre-scraped and ready to go. When adding your own nubs, follow this method if twisting becomes difficult. PLEASE make sure you twist the nubs all the way into the bullet until they cannot be twisted any further.
