Pricey compared to other extenders, but best quality.
By A Statistical Artist
Comments about General's General’s The Miser Pencil Extender:
I've seen and used the aluminum and wood pencil extenders from other brands, but this is my favorite of all of them, because the construction is firm, the wood is nice, and the handle is longer than most pencil extenders. The only con is that even for this quality, I feel as if it is a bit too overpriced. However, if money isn't an object, it is definitely the best-quality pencil extender I've found thus far.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Extends the life of your pencil
from Powhatan, VA
A lot of my pencils were at the end of their useful life. They were short little stubs. Now I have been able to extend their life with the pencil extenders. The extender grips the pencil very well and Is comfortable to use.
Great pencil extender
from Apache Junction, AZ
This is a great pencil extender. It will really come in handy when the pencil gets down to a nub.
Excellent tool for artists !

Best pencil extender
I have several of these from different brands and Generals has the best fit when it comes to both Staedtler hex barrels or round pencils of similar diameter. The fit is tight like it should be. The handle is also a little longer than Koh-I-Noor by two centemeters (roughly 3/4 inch).

The best I've found
from West Blmfld, MI
I thought at first that pencil extenders were a bit crazy, but I certainly have changed my mind. These work great. I tried a cheaper brand and they do not hold the pencil as snugly....and we all know how a penciul loves to snuggle! My pencils last much longer and they will probably still be here when I am dead. I have reordered this item before and if I can remember who Dick Blick is, I will be sure to order more.
