Best Mechanical Pencils

Our Best Mechanical Pencils So Far…

You will be hard pushed to find the best mechanical pencils ever…as this is individual opinion dependent on an individual’s specific wants and desires.

So what makes our mechanical pencils the best of them all?

Our Mechanical pencils are handmade from solid premium quality and space grade metals and beautiful woods too. We have to assume that a pencil has to have qualities that will vary between people’s specific needs and perform to the best of those needs.


Let’s start with a Walnut and Brass Mechanical Pencil – Is it for you?


Best mechanical pencils - Walnut and Brass

Lightweight with a gorgeous fine walnut grain and matched with a warm brass nib is our beautiful traditional wooden pencil. It’s for those who may prefer the more natural and less modern looking mechanical pencil. Perhaps this pencil would appeal more to someone who works directly with wood like a carpenter or furniture designer. The thing is that trying to find the best mechanical pencil for drawing or writing is completely subjective. Here we will let you decide by seeing all of our pencils which will become your favourite or best mechanical pencil.

Do you think the best mechanical pencils should be made of wood or metal?

Another one of our wooden mechanical pencils in our range is made from reclaimed ebony hardwood with brass nib. It is a slightly heavier wooden pencil, but has a far tighter grain than the walnut and brass version and polishes up beautifully when we apply beeswax to the final polish.

Warm to the touch, this wooden mechanical pencil is one of our best mechanical pencils if you are a fan of natural polished wood finishes.
