The Kaweco Sketch Up is a reliable, heavyweight pencil that perfectly balances high quality with great value. Kaweco continues to manufacture their products in Nuremberg, Germany, using quality materials sourced from all over the world, making it a brand that has stood the test of time since its inception in the mid 1930s.
Featuring a shiny chrome finish, this Kaweco Sketch Up closely follows the original octagonal design. Although it is compact in length, measuring at just 10.3cm, the solid brass barrel with polished chrome nose means it is a sturdy pencil weighing 36g. A sharpener is integrated in the removable push button at the top.
The pencil comes in a tin box with one 5.6mm 5B graphite lead, but it accepts leads sized 5.4 to 5.7mm. The lead itself is soft and malleable, making it perfect for fine lines when the lead is sharp or thicker lines using the side.
Note: New lead should be inserted through the tip of the pencil. Do not remove the top push button.
