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.
Bold and substantial, this 5.6mm monster is ideal for those with an artistic temperament, being particularly well suited to sketching. Its barrel is made of sturdy metal, available finished in an alluring industrial green, silver or rich burgundy.
The push-button doubles as a pencil sharpener and spare leads are available.
