Joyful drawing, timeless design. I’ve always loved using a mechanical pencil. I remember my Dad giving me a Pentel when I was a teenager and I was instantly hooked on using it for sketching as well as drawing, the feel of graphite on paper and the forgiving nature of the erasablility and soft grey tone. Not to mention the satisfying click of the mechanism itself. 

I think this may be why it’s taken me so long to design one myself, it had to live up to my own high expectations of what makes a great mechanical pencil!

First and foremost, it had to feel amazing to use.  So I started by designing the form.  I wanted it to be sleek and unfussy, with simple details that make all the difference.  The best mechanical pencils often combine materials to create the perfect balance in the hand, and mine is no exception.  The grip area is solid brass which offers a smooth yet tactile feeling when holding the pen as well as bringing the balance towards the front which makes for precise control and feedback from the page.

The main body of the pen is aluminium which takes away any excess weight that would result from the whole pen being brass.  This also means that you can choose between 5 beautiful shades to make your pen feel truly yours.

The mechanism is as reliable as they come.  It has a solid aluminium plunger that locates into a German made Schmidt DSM with a large capacity for lead and an all important and extremely satisfying *click*
