The Workshop Sketch pencil has a broad, bold form, and is unbelievably comfortable in the hand. It is equally at home in the workshop, man cave or an artist's hand. This chubby pencil reduces hand strain and also allows a decent grip for people who have limited hand dexterity.
This ultra comfy pencil is a stunning showcase of ironbark timber. Ironbark is a distinctive Australian hardwood that is prized for its strength and durability. The heartwood is a deep dark red to red-brown with a fine texture. Indigenous Australians used ironbark timber to make clapsticks, spear throwers and boiled its bark for treating sores. It is a heavy and dense timber and difficult to work with but makes stunning and durable decking, flooring and outdoor framing. Industrial applications include shipbuilding (keel, framing, planking), wharf and bridge construction, railway sleepers, piles and poles. Ironbark was reputedly used in the hulls of early ice-breaker ships, carriage building, croquet mallets, gymnastic parallel bars and bowling ninepins.
This pencil features hard wearing chrome fittings and a broad, handcrafted wooden body approximately 1.3mm at its widest section. It is a clutch mechanical pencil with a four-jaw collet firmly holding the extra thick 4B lead that is break resistant. A gentle push on the spring-loaded top of the pencil opens the collet so you can advance or retract the lead to the desired length. Changing refills is simple and you can store the graphite lead within the pen body to avoid accidental scribbles while it is in a pencil case. The top, when unscrewed from the pencil, features an internal sharpener to renew the point. Included in this listing is one 5.6mm x 80mm lead. You can purchase additional pencil leads below.
BONUS: This amazing pencil converts to a pen. Simply remove the pencil refill by releasing the collet jaws, insert an ultra-comfortable mini pen refill and close the collet jaws. This listing does not include a pen refill but you can purchase them below.
This pencil is individually crafted by local wood artisans using a lathe and chisel. Every pencil is sanded and polished by hand and finished with 10 layers of CA which displays the beauty of the timbers exceptionally well. The super glossy finish is highly durable.
The Workshop Sketch pencil comes in a quality black presentation box. You can add an engrave-able wooden box below.
