A mechanical pencil with a wooden body and a thick 2mm lead by Penco.
Compatible with 2.0mm refills
Penco and Kitaboshi Pencil Company have teamed up to develop a nostalgic yet sophisticated writing tool "for the grown ups." The pencil is crafted in Japan using a luxurious incense-cedar that is sustainably grown in the USA. The thick 2mm core is made from superior Japanese lead and binder that do not contain impurities. The wooden hexagonal body equipped with brass fittings provides you a balanced heft, where the periphery is heavier than its core. All of these factors combined achieves a smooth writing experience that is truly unique.
Penco, the "pen company", is a Japanese brand that was born after a happy encounter with a single ballpoint pen made in the USA. Every last detail of the brand's wide range of office supplies holds a bit of nostalgia for the old school days, such as the touch and smell of paper, as if found in an old bookstore.
