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.

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

    Considerations: Brass will develop a unique patina as its surface oxidises and interacts with the natural oils in your skin. This pen will quickly look like a timeless tool, but can easily be polished back to its original lustre by following these simple steps.

Expensive, but worth it

The pencil is expensive, but when you receive it you'll see where the money was spent: meticulous machining of quality materials w/o cutting any corners.

There are other machined metal pencils out there in a similar price range. The ones I'm aware of use plastic was produced internals. This isn't one of those pencils.

Mechanical Pencil - Brass

I found Wingback purely by chance - I wish I had found it earlier. The mechanical pencil is well balanced and writes perfectly - It's 100% English and climate neutral now my friends and colleagues want one !

Barry Green (Grimsby, Lincolnshire) (Biggleswade, GB)
The finest pencil I have ever owned

Without question, the finest mechanical pencil I have ever owned. It is a pleasure to use and so smart and appealing in its matching brass holder on the desk in front of me. Being turned from solid brass, it bears the type of weightiness that I enjoy in similar items that I own and is such a joy to use that I am constantly searching for an excuse to remove it from its holder! Full marks to Wingback for producing a first-class writing implement.

Why The One Star Rating

I'm unable to give the Mechanical Pencil a rating above a 1 star due to I haven't used it. I opened the package when it arrived and realized it wasn't the Mechanical Pen. I'm guessing I must've picked the Mechanical Pencil by mistake. Now I own a expensive item that will never see any use at all.
I sent a email asking if I could return the Mechanical Pencil in exchange for the pen and never received a response back.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for getting in touch - I sent you an email regarding the exchange on 19th September, please can you take a look and get back to me?

Reassuring sturdy pencil.

This reassuringly sturdy and well made pencil fits well in a pocket with the knowledge that it won't be damaged or damage my pocket. A joy to use. Thank you.
