I have a Calibri automatic pencil that I received when i retired in 2000 but I haven’t used it very much. I have just started using it but notice it doesn’t seem to have an eraser. When i unscrew the top there is an extended plastic piece that covers the lead tube but I don’t see an eraser. Do you know if it has an eraser and if so, how do I access it? I’ve tried just pulling on the upper half of the pencil without unscrewing it from the base but it doesnt separate and i don’t want to force it.
