  • The Designer’s Mechanical Pencil.

    The Wingback Mechanical Pencil is engineered to write as far as your journey takes you. With a wide 10mm (3/8 inch) diameter and diamond knurled grip, it sits comfortably in the hand to reduce writing fatigue, while the satisfying weight of its materials encourages more time to be taken with every stroke. A retractable lead sleeve protects the graphite and eliminates nib wobble, and a bespoke internal mechanism holds up to 2.4m of lead. 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.

  • Metal: Aerospace-grade stainless steel 304 from Europe, CNC machined in Birmingham, UK.

    Mechanism: Bespoke all-metal mechanism made in Iwaki, Japan.

    Sleeve: Oeko-Tex double thickness cotton sleeve from Poland, Europe.

    Finish: Laser engraved, assembled by hand and packaged in London, UK.

  • Weight & Dimensions: 40g (1.41 oz), Ø10mm (3/8") diameter, 117.5mm (4.63") length

    Mechanism: Fits 2.4m of 0.7mm or 4.8m of 0.5mm diameter lead (40 refills)

    Engraving: All inscriptions are in capital letters and run along the length of the barrel

    Considerations: The Black Steel pen retains all the precision and corrosion-resistant qualities of stainless steel, while the tungsten carbide finish increases the surface hardness 9x. Any marks it picks up from regular use should be easily wiped away. However, the surface is scratch resistant, not scratch proof. Anything harder than the surface (diamond, some ceramics) or really aggressive use will be able to scratch it, which is why we recommend keeping it in its cotton sleeve when not in use, and carrying your diamonds in another pocket.

Beautifully balanced and well made.

I picked up the four pencil set with engraved artwork. As I started using these pencils I noticed now stable the lead is and how well balanced the body of the pencil was. The only ‘hm’ I noticed was that you can feel the engraving (art work) on your fingers when in use and might be distracting to some. I would have preferred a smooth feel myself but that is a minor concern considering how good these pencils are. I’m anxious to see how well they stand up to regular use over time. Only time will tell. Today I’m very happy with my funding of this project. Excellent customer service by the way.

Outstanding!

My first impression when receiving the pencil was how short it was, however the balance and craftsmanship was apparent. I have really enjoyed drawing with it and found that it works seamlessly with my use of Blackwing pencils for portraits!

Excellent details and craftsmanship!

I'm very happy with my two pencils I got through Kickstarter. The quality and craftsmanship are excellent, and equal to products produced by established companies like Cross, Mont Blanc, or Pelican.
