"Fatboy pencil"Review: Great pencil I’m replacing the original one I had stolen. They write great but this time I have had to return the last one because the sharpener wasn’t leaving a point it was more rounded over. The current one I have I bought online this time hoping it would be better but the eraser keeps falling out when I turn it upside down. I love this pencil but the quality control is poor. <br> <br> <strong>Response:</strong> Sorry for the issues you have experienced with your FatBoy pencil, but I am glad to hear that you enjoy using the product. The issue with the eraser is a manufacturing defect that we are aware of and have corrected, please let me know your mailing address and I will send you a small container with replacement erasers of the correct size at no charge. Our sincere apologies.
"Great pencil, slight flaw"Review: Pencil works fantastic, nice thick lead, easy to sharpen and seems to stay sharp. Have a had a few people comment on how nice it is. My only issue is that i also ordered a refill pack (3 leads and 3 erasers) and seems like the replacement erasers are a smaller diameter, they fall out of the pencil immediately. <br> <br> <strong>Response:</strong>Sorry for the issues with the FatBoy refill. I will help you get this taken care of. This has happened once or twice in the past where there is a defect in manufacturing and the erasers are made too small, and we offer our sincere apology about that. I would be happy to send you replacement erasers at no charge. just let me know the address you would like them to be mailed to, I will test them myself before they go out to make sure they are perfect. Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you at this time, Kind Regards, Thomas (firstname.lastname@example.org)
"Great Tool"Review: I would like to give the Fat Boy a "5" because it is such a great product. However as the lead gets shorter it doesn't want to come out of the body. Is there something I can do to resolve this? Keep up the good work.<br> <br> <strong>Response: </strong>I'll have to play with it and see what I figure out. I've never heard of this.
"Eraser Issues"Review: I bought a FatBoy at Duluth Trading company. The part that hold the eraser falls off the top of the pencil. I have owned this pencil for only a few weeks. Did I buy a broken pencil from Duluth? If I turn the pencil over the metal pieces that hold the pencil sharpener and the erase fall out?<br> <br> <strong>Response: </strong>Sounds like the threads are stripped out. Contact Sandi (email@example.com) and she'll send you a new one.
"Teacher's Pet"Review: This is my favorite FastCap layout item. It's clean, doesn't roll around a work surface and stays sharp for quite a long time. Adding the functionality of being able to sharpen in any pencil sharpener AND easily changing out the leads/crayons is a huge benefit. The Scouts clamor for these at each Woodwork Merit Badge I teach - so I have started giving them away as an award to the best overall leader and champion at each event.
"Love it"Review: I love mine and use it every day. The lead is amazingly tough and can take a sharp point. If it just had a sharpener in the cap, like some drafting lead holders, it would be perfect. <br><br> RESPONSE:<br> I agree! We're working on it! Paul
"Fat boy pencil"Review: Great pencil. The metal is smooth, it slips too easy. I sprayed it with contact cement to get some grip. I'd buy it again if they upgraded the lack of grip........
"Great pencil, but . . ."Review: Pencil is great, needs to be colored international orange! At this price can't afford to lose it so easily. Need option of harder leads 2H. Crayons need to also be a bit harder & a white crayon would be nice for roofing
"Fat Boy Pencil"Review: I love this pencil,but the first time I dropped it,It came apart and would not stay together
