Rotring 600 Drafting Pencil
There is nothing better than knowing you're writing down your daily to do list (probably the same damn stuff you wrote down the day before, and before that) with a superior writing instrument. And that's exactly what this baby is. You can just tell by the weight of it.
This highly sought after Japan only product has a weight and feel that represents what a professional drafting pencil should be to many people. It has an all metal brass body, traditional knurled grip, fixed 4 mm sleeve, lead grade indicator (with knurled metal casing) and clip. It has a very technical look and will appeal to engineers for its solid construction and lead advancement mechanism. The guide pipe gives an excellent view of the lead. The pencil has a 8 mm diameter grip and 9 mm hexagonal body shape. The subtle change in body shape links this modern drafting pencil with its wooden pencil ancestors.
