Mechanical engineer Andrew Sanderson challenged himself to create a sleek mechanical pencil with a discreet design. That is, the objective was to create a pencil that would not immediately reveal how it was put together, a quality that Sanderson finds as intriguing as the pencil itself.
Moreover, Sanderson wanted to make sure that his pencil was especially durable. In fact, he is so confident that the pencil will "last a lifetime," that if anything does happen, he will fix or replace your pencil.
Lastly, the metal pencil offers a solution to the waste being caused by the plastic versions that are currently available. Sanderon's interpretation of the mechanical pencil is ultimately sophisticated, durable and eco-friendly.
