About This Product
Kaweco Sketch Up is a big, bold clutch pencil that takes an extra-large 5.6 mm lead. (For comparison, a standard artist pencil has a 2 mm lead.) As the name suggests, it's ideal for loose sketches with broad lines and shading. A spring-loaded metal clasp holds the lead in place and allows it to be advanced easily with the button on the back of the pencil. Unscrew that back button from the pencil and you'll find a built-in sharpener.
The build quality of this pencil is just as impressive as its unique functionality. It's all metal, with a raw brass body and aluminum components. There are very few parts, which means a longer life, as very few things could go wrong with this simple device.
Raw brass is one of our favorite materials, because it develops a patina as you use it, deepening in color and picking up marks as it ages. You can polish it to restore some of the original look, but we love how these pencils look as they get older.
Made in Germany. One soft graphite lead included. Shop more 5.6 mm leads and holders.
Compatible with Kaweco slide-on clip (sold separately.)
