  • 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.

The Pencil that ends a lifetime search

The only regret getting this pencil is I should have gone with the Last Maps collab version. The build quality of this pencil, the low-key markings, the insanely large capacity for holding extra lead refills, the correct heft and handling makes this the last pencil you’ll ever own in a lifetime.

My Wingback - Brass Pencil

I have recently receive my first Wingback mechanical pencil and I love it so much that I have already ordered a second one. I'm a graphite artist and I produce very detailed works. The first big selling point for me was the fact that the pencil holds up to 40 leads. I spend well over 300 hours on some of my pieces and not having to worry about refilling with lead is a good thing. The next selling point is it's simplicity. The wingback pencil fits nice in my hand and feels comfortable even after drawing for hours. I'm looking forward to receiving my second pencil and plan to order the Black Steel when it becomes available. Great product.

Brassy and Beautiful

As a botanical artist who purchased the brass mechanical pencil for my 75th birthday, I've always wanted a beautiful and elegant pencil - indestructible, always sharp and easy to carry around. I finally found The One!

Incredible pencil

It writes so smoothly, the weight and balance are perfect, and it’s gorgeous. What more could you ask for? I’ve given a whole bunch of these as gifts and everyone loves them.
