Subtle and precise

When we first picked up this lovely pencil, we were awed by how well-balanced it felt in our hands. Precision machined out of brass and finished with a pleasingly smooth matte surface, using this pencil is an absolute pleasure.

The ITOYA Helvetica Mechanical Pencil compliments the standard wood Helvetica Pencil, and fits in both the A5 and Pocket Art Toolkit.
