OK, so HB pencils aren't exactly the most stylish or interesting writing instruments, however, these traditional tools have been given a huge makeover with the Midori Brass Pencils.
The Midori Brass Pencils are probably the most stylish pencils I've seen. In fact, if the cap wasn't on, I'd have automatically thought it was another fancy new pen designed by the likes of Karl Lagerfeld. This miniature tool has a brass finish with a bullethead cap that covers the tip when it's not being used. The addition of the clip on the side and the oversized eraser on top makes a nice addition to the traditional HB pencils that most are use to seeing and using. Not a bad item to bring back to school if you're the type who likes stylish writers.
