    The Faber Castell 2/83, or even better the FB 2/83N Novo Duplex, is by
    some said to be the best ever made. It is a desktop model of double
    length. Unfortunatly that makes it sensitive to temperature changes (or
    so "they" say). The  pocket version is FB 63/83.
    "Best" is of course a matter of opinion, usually based on number of
    scales, type of scales and accuracy.
