In the last few weeks I came across a few interesting items I want to share with you.
Lego’s mechanical pencil, the one that looks uncomfortable to hold, has been discontinued. Some shops still stock it, though. If you want one you better hurry. I was able to resist (so far).
(you might have seen this one on the Bleistift Twitter feed)
Uni Mitsubishi’s Emott series will see the addition of 0.9 mm Emott pencils on 24 September 2021. Three different ‘colour groups’ (refresh, tropical and nostalgic) will be availble at launch. To me these mechanical pencils feel a bit like a modern day version of Faber-Castell’s Colormatics.
The Fineliner pens from the Emott series have been available in the West for some time now. I hope the mechanical pencils make it here, too.
Cynic released a tribute song for Sean, our dear pencil friend who passed away far too soon.
You can find out more at Loudwire. Thanks to Stephen for letting me know about this.
The images of the Lego mechanical pencil has been taken from the Lego web site. I believe that the use of these images falls under “fair dealing” as described by the UK Copyright service.
