      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 1.4m of 0.9mm, 2.4m of 0.7mm or 4.8m of 0.5mm diameter lead

      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.

    worst mechanical pencil

    I bought my pencil about 6 months ago, it had good build quality etc, however problems started in the first month very unreliable lead not moving or mechanism being unable to feed consistently, i contacted support and got an automated response. After about 2 month the pencil completely stopped working unable to feed or hold lead at all I've taken it apart and cleaned each component to be sure. But alas garbage, since I use it for work I bought a 5 pound alternative which has been working great for past 4 months no issues. However I just picked it up again after these 4 months cleaned it and still doesn't work, so decided to write this review. Buyers beware

    Hi Felix,

    Thanks for getting in touch, really sorry to hear your pencil is having issues.

    I've had a look through email history but can't see an email from you previously getting in touch about the issue. Not sure what happened there but if I had received the message i certainly would have made every effort to assist you then and there.

    More than happy to send out a replacement mechanism for you with a return label for the original, I've sent an email over asking you to confirm your address and I can get it sroted.

    Brass Mechanical Pencil 0.7mm

    I enjoy well designed, robust tools that work perfectly and last forever. Personally, I feel there’s a value in that which can take an everyday activity (like writing & drawing) to a higher and more enjoyable level. I’m very happy with my brass mechanical pencil. The brass dulls quickly, which I like, and it’s very smooth to use. Solid weight and stable. I opted for engraving my name on it too, and I’m glad I did - It’s quite small and low-key, just right. Thanks Wingback!

    My Titanium mechanical pencil

    I do alot of drawing and decided to treat myself to something special. I read many reviews on this product and was impressed. So I went ahead and made an order with an inscription. Had to wait a couple weeks but it was so worth the wait. This pencil takes all the strain out of drawing for hours. It moves smoothly with it specially weighted design. I love the way it sits in your hand. I currently use my titanium mechanical pencil for creating my manga. A very well made pencil with 0% nib wobble. Which makes the difference when drawing curves.

    This Brass pencil is an investment. The materials, dimensions and working action all seem very well thought out and come together with longevity in mind. As habitual sketch book user, I will certainly put it to the test. So far, so good.
