mark-ii-everlasting-mechanical-pencil

We’re all familiar with the stereotypical mechanical pencil, but you don’t have to settle for the black, plastic option when you have the Mark II handmade everlasting mechanical pencil. Designed and built by Nicholas Hemingway as a follow-up to the successful Kickstarter of the Mark I, Mark II is even more sleek and streamlined than its predecessor. Each pencil is produced on the lathe that Hemingway’s grandfather gave to him after his passing and is available in aluminum brass or stainless finishes in 0.3, 0.5, 0.7 and 0.9mm lead thicknesses. If you draft, scribble or draw in lead, you’re going to want one of these gorgeous pencils.
