Modern and stylish mechanical pencil with lots of great features.
This attractive pencil features the Tombow Mono stripe design, and has a transparent gray grip area and clear clip.
The popular Tombow Mono eraser is installed at the top with a twist mechanism and usable length of approximately 1.8 cm.
When you want to extend the lead just shake the pencil up and down! The shaker mechanism advances the lead by shaking the pencil while drawing and writing or by pressing the clip down.
To lock the shaker mechanism, push the clip upward. When locked, you don't have to worry about accidentally extending the lead; even when you shake the pencil, the lead will not come out.
The 4mm long guide pipe prevents the lead from breaking and helps with precision drawing and writing.
Pencils are graded based on the ratio of clay and graphite each pencil contains. More graphite gives a softer, darker line while more clay makes for a harder, lighter line. A HB pencil is equal parts clay and graphite making for a great all around option.
Pencil grades from hardest to softest:
4H, 2H, H, F, HB, B, 2B, 4B, 6B, 8B
