YStudio's Mechanical Pencil Is a Brass Beauty

For a while, it looked like mechanical pencils were destined for extinction. Then the Japanese reminded us once again that even the simplest things can be beautiful when designed with impeccable restraint and perfect materials.

Made of brass to give it ideal weight and feel, YStudio's mechanical pencil is glorious design overkill in every way, with a beautiful and comfortable hexagonal shape, a stable grip, and smooth writing capabilities. For those who need something a little extra at their desk, this is it.
