Cleo Skribent Messograf

A blast from the past: Three years Cult Pens provided pencils for Bleistift’s giveaway for the first ever Mechanical Pencil Day. One of these was the Messograf, a very special mechanical pencil I showed at the time, but never presented in its own blog post – something I want to rectify today.

You can find out more about Cleo Skribent, the company behind the Messograf, their history, the Messograf itself and the ever-so-cool built-in Vernier caliper in the video below.

I hope you enjoyed the video.

The giveaway was a great opportunity for me to try out new pencils I hadn’t used before, before sending them on to the winners.
