Crafted out of solid brass, this Kaweco's sketch-up hexagonal barrel has something under its sleeve that will leave you in awe. This vintage style lead holder has an antique touch to its design. The perfect mechanical functionality makes it ideal for sketching and drawing. The geometric barrel is designed to hold a lead sized 5.4 to 5.7 mm. The lead is functionally optimisable by the knob installed on the top. This holder comes with a 5.5 mm 5B graphite lead inside and it is encased with a metal box.

It’s a great pencil. Just don’t press the button, pointing down because it might drop the lead. I love how it feels in hand. It’s heavy and definitely sturdy. The lines are solid and dark, easy to sharpen the tip with the provided sharpener in the button. I just wish the clip came standard instead of sold separately. It’s part of my EDC rotation now. Nice to have it for those random sketches and even just to jot things down. they’ve never seen before. I see it becoming one of my heirloom pieces.
