Where to buy

Mechanical pencils features a replaceable lead that can be mechanically extendable.

Mechanical pencils are used to mark lines on various materials prior to their processing. The leads can be constantly used without sharpening which ensures the lines drawn on materials are consistently narrow and accurate. The pencil housing can also have built-in sharpeners which mean when a finer line is needed a separate sharpener does not need to be carried.
