This is one of those pencils with stacked leads inside the body. When one point wears down, you slide it into the other end of the pencil, using it to push the next lead into position. I found a box of ten in the dollar bin and got them as a back-to-school treat for myself. (These particular pencils have a repeating print of dinosaurs or mammoths further along the body.)

I love those pencils, too. I hate to have to find the lead and install it in other types of automatic pencils. It seems like magic when they reload by themselves.
