Named after the Japanese term for a regular wooden pencil, Enpitsu mechanical pencils combine the simple elegance of a wooden pencil with the convenience of a mechanical pencil. Its thick lead provides the smoothness and versatility of a wooden pencil. The body of the pencil is made from colorful transparent plastic and has a hexagonal shape that mimics a wooden pencil and keeps the pencil from rolling away. Its tip is retractable, minimizing the chance for accidental pokes while the pencil is not in use. Instead of a cap that could get lost, the pencil has a top that does not come off, and lead can be inserted through it without removing any parts.
This pencil comes with two pieces of 2B lead, which is softer and darker than standard HB lead.
