I happily came upon another example of the ebonized pearl Balance pencil with the longer rigid radius clip, this time in a monochromatic color scheme of black and grey pearl, with silver trim. The black and grey ebonized pearl does not have the plain black top and tip. This is the largest size Balance pencil measuring 5 & 5/8 inches, and, like the smaller transitional black and blue ebonized pearl Balance, has the imprint with the patent number and uses 1.1 mm lead. This is also a lifetime warranty pen's companion.
Below you can see a large striated rigid radius pencil alongside this pearl pencil.
And here is a better view of the clips and center bands.
They balance each other nicely.
