Fountain pens, biros and felt tips have their fans, but we use a pencil every time. They never leak or dry out, they require no blotting, and will write at any angle. The mechanical pencil is for us the writing implement at its very best.
A practical everyday writing implement, the 2mm HB lead of this model is equivalent to that of a nicely sharpened wooden pencil. Its tough plastic barrel features a pocket clip, and it has a sharpener incorporated in the push-button.
The pencils are available in five colours: no-nonsense black, jaunty yellow, a very racy scarlet, bright blue, forest green and a rather smart silver.
