‘Pocket’ pencil in Palladium, by Graf von Faber-Castell. This exquisite propelling pencil is small but absolutely perfectly formed — quite beautiful in fact. As the name suggests, it’s perfect for popping into your pocket without taking up any more room than is absolutely necessary.
The “pocket” range of writing instruments are very short, being only 9cm long when lid is on with pen in ‘closed’ position. When combined with a hard-wearing, non-reactive and precious palladium coating, they are ideal writing instruments to travel with. With a twist off cap and spring-loaded clip, the cap can be placed on the other end to extend the length when writing.
The pencil comes with a 0.7mm HB lead plus a white replaceable eraser under the cap. Also supplied with a superb Graf von Faber-Castell gift box.
Length of pencil with lid closed: 90mm
Length when extended (i.e. with the cap on the other end): 107mm.
Length with cap completely removed: 73mm.
