While mango tree is well known around the world for its popular fruit, mango timber also creates beautiful pens. The heartwood is a golden brown often with dark fine streaks in the grain and a lovely fine grain. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pencil we create is one of a kind.
This attractive and functional workshop / sketch pencil features hard wearing chrome fittings. This unique pencil is equally at home in the shed or an artist's hand. It is a clutch mechanical pencil with a thick lead that can be sharpened as it wears away and then replaced. This pencil has a wide comfortable wooden body approximately 1.3mm at its widest section. Click here for a selection of our thinner bodied pencils.
The extra thick (5.6mm x 80mm) 2B (approx) round lead resists breaking and is held firmly in place by a four-jaw collet at the bottom of the pencil mechanism. Just push on the spring-loaded top of the pencil and the collet opens so you can advance or retract the lead to the desired length. The top, when unscrewed from the pencil, features an internal sharpener to renew the point. You can buy additional pencil leads below.
BONUS: This pencil converts to a pen. Simply remove the pencil lead by releasing the collet jaws, insert the pen refill and close the collet jaws. This listing does not include a pen refill, you can buy a mini-pen refill below.
This wooden pencil is created by an artisan who hand turns each pencil on a wood lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding process and 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the mango timber and create an exceptional and durable finish.
This pencil comes in a protective sleeve. You can add a quality black presentation box below.
