It should keep you writing, sketching, drawing and designing as long as your creativity lasts. Every pencil can be personalised with a laser engraved inscription of up to 50 characters along the length of the barrel.

    Small but well engineered

    I purchased a mechanical pencil in steel. It is beautifully engineered but rather small in the hand and the lack of a pocket clip is a real disadvantage. That said I’m sure it will last a lifetime provided I don’t forget where I put it.

    A Thing Of Beauty

    I’d heard about Wingback mechanical pencils and seen pictures of them. Being someone who prefers pencil to pen I thought I’d treat myself to one. Not only does it look great, it feels fabulous in the hand and writes beautifully. I simply love using it.

    Very pleased with my new mechanical pencil

    I love writing with my new mechanical pencil! It feels great, looks great and should last for years. Superb!

    What a superb pencil!

    I love this pencil. It is beautifully engineered, is perfectly balanced and stores enough lead to last a l-o-n-g time. It feels 'right' in the hand but is weighted so that you know that you are holding and using it. The knurling on the barrel is spot on: not so aggressive that it shreds your finger tips but definitely pronounced enough to enable you to maintain firm, positive control. It matches the pen perfectly. Now, when will the fountain pen be ready?

    Love it!

    I'll admit, I fell for the mechanical pencil initially based purely on appearance - I haven't used a mechanical pencil since school (a very long time ago!), but was eager to get my hands on this. Yes, it wasn't cheap, and was certainly a case of treating myself, but I don't regret it - it's a joy to hold, and a joy to use - very smooth, such a pleasant writing experience. Currently looking for more excuses to write rather than type!
