    Sigh. It would appear that if I want 1.1 mm leads I have but two options. Order from Scripto.
    Or Rite in the Rain. Problem is that I can not order online.
    I'm plotting and scheming how to get .9 mm to stay in the mechanism. The Duofold is a really neat pencil. I'd like to tote it!

    I've recently moved back to a paper diary, so have paired it with a teeny tiny zebra T3.

    I fooled around and got a .9mm lead to stay in the pencil.
    I think a pretty serious bump would dislodge it but I shall
    endeavor not to do that.

    @PBJS II: Not being able to order online must be a real hassle. You might want to check in at an office supply store or an art supply store. I'm thinking Staple or Office Depot might be able to help you get 1.1 mm...

    Staples do show 1.3 mm leads; I did not see any 1.1 or 1.13 leads. On the other hand, Amazon does show 1.13 leads; maybe you can get a friend to help you order?

    L'chaim!
