This Artist Sketch Pencil has been hand-turned by Brad Dinwiddie. The wood barrel is made from a sparckly acrylic in shades of green and purple. The pencil features professional quality 5.6mm 4B lead. The top quality "plunger" type lead holder mechanism holds the lead firmly in place at all times while allowing you to instantly adjust the lead position with the push of your thumb. In addition, the convenient built-in lead sharpener inside the cap helps you keep the lead sharp at all times. Leads can be found in a variety of colors that fit the pencil, as well as charcoals. Also great for woodworkers who need a pencil that won't break when drawing on rough wood.
