No clip, no eraser and the 2.0 is sleek and visually simple ... a delight in a writing tool. No eraser? Why? Less distraction when writing. I don’t erase. Instead, I put a sinlge line through a mistake and contine, with no disruption to flow of thought. Chunk eraser for art and design. Only suggestion is to make it even simpler by eliminating the need for the wrench by adding a slight knarl at the top, or slot for thumbnail to twist. But 4 leads last a long time and I’ll just replace them when one runs out, with three in the reserve meanwhile.
If you... If you purchased one of the bronze 2.0 pencils, but didn't buy one of the bronze plugs, then it is my own personal belief that you don't DESERVE to own such a fine writing instrument. Just, wrap it up. Send it back to Andrew. He'll give you your money back...
On second thought, just buy the d*** plug. Problem solved.
