With its tactile computer engraved texture on stonewashed pewter finish, the Douglass rollerball has become a cherished addition to the Vintage Metalsmith line. Joining this elegant rollerball are a 1.15 mm pencil and a fountain pen. The famous abolitionist and orator’s portrait is on the fountain pen finial and on the packaging labels for both pencil and fountain pen. Each writing instrument is complete with antique copper trim. "His life’s work still serves as an inspiration to those who seek equality and a more just society."
The Retro 51 Tornado pencil is a twist-action mechanical pencil with a trademarked knurled top which contains a large, replaceable eraser.
The pencil lead is front loaded, and the amount of lead showing is adjusted by the knurled cap. Take care to remove any waste lead before inserting the new lead but stop turning when the ejector pin is visible, otherwise you can damage the mechanism. Turn back the pin and insert the new lead.
The pencil is supplied with 6 black erasers and 12 1.15mm HB leads.
Your Tornado pencil comes in attractive gift packaging which doubles as a deskpen holder.
