TWSBI's Jr. Pagoda mechanical pencil is a secret winner: come for the stylish colorways, stay for the irresistible ease of use. Fitted with 0.5mm lead and an extendable eraser on the end, it's a perfect pencil for first drafts. A rubber grip keeps it comfortable in the hand through long writing or drafting sessions, and a metal clip lets you slip it onto the cover of your notebook when the writing's done for the day.
To extend the eraser, remove the metal cap and pull the eraser from the pencil. Feed the eraser back into the pencil slowly until it reaches the desired length, then replace the cap.
Choose from Blue, White, or Marmalade colorways.
Takes any 0.5mm lead refill.
With 50 years of experience in pen making, Taiwanese manufacturer TWSBI is beloved for its high quality writing tools at affordable prices. Most of their pens are made with transparent barrels, allowing you to develop your own technique and understanding of a pen's particular inkflow.
TWSBI's name comes from the phrase "Hall of Three Cultures" or San Wen Tong in Chinese. The phrase San Wen Tong recalls the Hall of the Three Rare Treasures, created by Emperor Qianlong as a memorial to three great masterpieces of Chinese calligraphy, with the character Wen translating to "language and culture." When reversed, the initials of the phrase San Wen Tong transform into "TWS". The last letters "Bi" was added with its literal meaning of "writing instruments". The two segments come together to create TWSBI.
Their mission is to inspire and recapture the romanticism of art and literature…starting with the pen.
