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.

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.

It's very different!

I bought the Wingback X Last Maps Octopus Brass Mechanical Pencil. And I love it! It's beautifully made and solid - such that I don't feel precious about using it, nor live in fear that I'll break it. It's in use every day for both drawing and writing.
I really like the attention to detail in it's design. The little black rubber washers that ensure that each section screws in tightly to it's adjacent sections with no seams visible and without the possibility of any section wriggling loose for example.
The octopus design around the barrel makes this pencil so very different from anything else in my collection or that I have seen generally. It's an edition limited to 25 and each pencil is individually numbered.
A couple of suggestions: an instruction sheet needs to be included in the package. Loading the pencil with lead is not straight-forward compared to other pencils. A clip on Youtube explaining it all should be as well as, not instead of!
My other suggestion would be that the individual numbering be etched on the outside of the pencil where it can be visible, without having to pull the pencil apart to find it.
But overall, I'm enjoying this purchase very much and can highly recommend it.
