Sometimes the permanence of a pen is risky. Whether that be because you’re doing a crossword puzzle, measuring something on your wall, or just unsure of what you’re about to write, situations often pop up that require an impermanent writing instrument. It’s one of the reasons we still believe in the humble pencil. What worked in grade school still works today. But instead of going back to a Ticonderoga, consider something more appropriate for a grown-up. The Modern Fuel 2.0 is a minimalist’s dream. It’s an heirloom device with a clean build and only a handful of parts. Apart from the eraser and o-ring, everything is built from solid metal. That means this pencil will work today and when you’re 100 years old scribbling a holiday shopping list for your great grandkids. Available in either titanium, stainless steel, copper, or bronze, the Modern Fuel 2.0 is the mechanical pencil you can bring to the office and not look like you’re missing your Composition book.
