The TK-Fine Vario Mechanical Pencil is ideal for writing and drawing with its unique soft/hard mechanism. When in the soft position, the lead is cushioned for writing. When in the hard position, the lead is held rigid for drawing. The pencil has a metal grip section and has a lead hardness indicator on the tip. The extendable eraser is extra long. Made in Germany by Faber-Castell.
* Though Faber calls it a .35mm, a .3mm lead fits into that pencil perfectly.
