Well, it finally happened: My beloved Koh-I-Noor Technigraph 5611 Lead Holder disintegrated irreparably, mid-sketch. Doubly sad because this all-metal version is no longer in production; in 1995, Koh-I-Noor, now owned by Chartpak, began manufacturing the Technigraph with a flimsy and all-but-weightless plastic barrel. I'm scouring ebay for a full-metal replacement. In the meantime, goodbye old friend.
