I'm looking for a better precision eraser - Nolan used one in the Jet Fighter lesson.

I got one of these

http://www.whsmith.co.uk/products/whsmith-novelty-patterned-pen-eraser-assorted-colours/35864189

but the eraser is way too soft to be really useful.

I have looked in various high street stores but can't find anything else...

I see this on Amazon
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tombow-Mono-Eraser-Zero-Round/dp/B00ACDQUYA/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1441037045&sr=8-1-spell&keywords=precision+eraaser

not sure if it is really what I am after either....

Any suggestions would be welcome!!

Adrian

Adrian,

I have tried so many erasers, but the best one WAS (because I lost it!) a Bic pen-type eraser that had a very small point.  I have more replacement erasers for it, but they are useless w/o the holder.

I found one similar (a Japanese made Pentel CLIC ERASER ZE22) that works well but the point is bigger than I'd like it to be.

I bought a Sakura Electric Eraser but hardly use it because I have not taken the time to learn how to control it.

I think the Tombow one you linked to is exactly the one you want. I have the "broad" version and it is excellent.

Here are links to  shops I use regularly.
