Mechanical pencils for drafting and design use have an important feature that sets them apart from a mechanical pencil for handwriting.
The drafting pencils have a metal sleeve that envelops the lead as it extends from the end of the pencil. This acts to protect the lead from breakage and most importantly allows the drawing of lines along a ruler, set square or template where the metal sleeve is the contact point and not the lead.
Our range includes the ever popular Staedtler Micro series, budget Draftex and Rotring models and the amazing new Uni Kuri Toga model with an incredibly clever rotational self sharpening system.
Sizes stocked are .3,.5,.7, and .9mm where available within the brands.
