About This Product
The Uni 2 mm Red Lead Holder is ideal for drawing, drafting, and correction. With a red body and bright red lead, this pencil really stands out. It's compatible with any of Mitsubishi Pencil's unparalleled graphite leads. And since Mitsubishi leads come in a reusable case, it's perfectly practical to carry both regular and red lead and swap them out as needed.
The lead holder itself is a time-tested design, with a modernist style and solid build quality. Though it's inexpensive, it is still made in Japan in accordance with Mitsubishi Pencil's high standards. The knurled metal grip gives the pencil a low center of gravity, making it more comfortable to use. A reliable clutch mechanism prevents leads from slipping or wobbling, as they can in lower-quality clutch pencils. A metal clip is provided to attach your lead holder to your notebook or pocket.
We recommend pairing the Uni 2 mm Lead Holder with an Uni 2 mm Lead Pointer, for ultrasharp points on any kind of lead. And for the best writing or drawing experience, fill this lead holder with Uni 2 mm Pencil Lead, available in a variety of hardnesses and in red.
This lead holder comes with one red lead. Uni 2 mm leads have a small piece of tape wrapped around the back end, so they cannot fall out of the clutch pencil when you advance the lead.
