Pros: Overall Quality, Durability
Good for travel
Can buy a styptic pencil much cheaper, but I purchased it for its travel packaging. I use a alum block & cold water for nicks, but thought this would be a good item for an emergency/travel kit. Fortunatly, mine was not broken and was carefully packed for shipping. About 2 or 3 times thicker than typical styptic pencil, but stubby. Good size for nick coverage. Have not used yet, but it looks like it should fill the bill.
