KarlBox Drawing Set

KarlBox Drawing Set

What happens when fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld teams up with writing instrument company Faber-Castell? Fancy, shmancy stuff, like this extravagant, limited-edition trunk, filled with 350 premium graphite pencils, pastels, and markers. Sadly, most artists can’t afford it.

Neri Pens & Pencils

Neri Pens & Pencils

Interno Italiano’s Neri are minimalist pens and mechanical pencils. Instead of having caps and the usual refilling system, they simply have a brass thumbscrew, akin to that used in technical compasses, to hold the ink cartridge or adjust the pencil lead.

Penxo Pencil

Penxo Pencil

A pencil that uses 2mm lead refills, except it has no moving parts. Instead, Penxo’s aluminum body simply grips the lead. Push your thumb into its gap to adjust, insert or remove the lead.

Rotring 800+ Pencil & Stylus

Rotring 800+ Pencil & Stylus

The Rotring 800+ is a mechanical pencil and stylus in one. Its pencil head prevents the lead from breaking, and retracts to give way to the rubber stylus tip. It also has a hexagonal barrel and a knurled grip.

Inkless Graphite Quill

Inkless Graphite Quill

Unlike our favorite inkless pens, this writing tool uses graphite. In fact, it’s all graphite, so you can use the entire surface to write. An anti-smudge compound keeps it from rubbing off on your hands.

Designed to look like the key for winding an old clock (or a robot toy), Suck UK’s metal sharpener is perfect for keeping pencils sharp enough to throw them into the ceiling so they stick.

Honest Boy Pencil Sharpener

Honest Boy Pencil Sharpener

Pinocchio, the little wooden boy with truth issues turns your pencil into a lie-detecting proboscis as he sharpens it to a fine point. Makes less sense without a pencil shoved into it, though.

Kuru Toga Self-Sharpening Pencil

Kuru Toga Self-Sharpening Pencil

A mechanical pencil with gears inside that rotate the lead to maintain a sharp tip. It doesn’t quite trump our favorite writing instrument, but props for making a pencil commercial seem exciting.

Drumstick Pencils

We’ve all drummed away at our desks at some point, so think of these Drumstick Pencils as the marriage of two great houses: wood pencils with oval tips, perfect for percussive prose.
