This mechanical pencil just might have the thickest lead ever made. At 6mm, it resists breakage while offering troubled, unsteady writers a wider, more stable platform with which they can form letters and write. The thick, matte finished barrel can help with grasping and reduce slipping. While not a weighted pencil, it does have more heft than a standard mechanical pencil and so provides greater feedback through the hand and fingers. Packaged in a tin gift box with 4 colored leads and 2 graphite ones. Additional graphite leads available. Smooth writing and beautiful to look at, this unique writing implement just might be the answer for one of the stuggling writers you know.
