Can a Rotring 600 become any better? Yes, add a retractable tip and you have the incredible Rotring 800. Rotring mechanical pencils are highly sought-after and requested at JetPens. The weight and feel are exactly what many people expect for professional drafting pencils. The Rotring 800 has a 4 mm lead sleeve that fully retracts, an all-metal brass body, a traditional knurled grip, and a clip. The lead sleeve is smoothly retracted by twisting the knurled section near the top of the pencil. This feature is wonderful for protecting the tip of this weighty pencil and your pockets. Engineers admire this pencil for its solid construction, lead advancement mechanism, and long guide pipe that provides an excellent view of the lead. A refillable eraser sits at the top, concealed by a cap.
The pencil is stylish, with a technical look and high-quality parts. Its hexagonal form is reminiscent of traditional wooden pencils, and accents include the iconic Rotring red circle below the eraser.
The pencil comes in a narrow cardboard box, and a larger silver cardboard gift box is also included.
