The Tombow OLNO (derived from "oruno" which means "bend" in Japanese) mechanical pencil, features a unique design mechanism that allows the user to extend pencil lead by simply bending the body. The body can be bent in any direction, making it very easy for writers or drawers to extend lead without changing their grip at all. In addition, there is a standard clicker for extending lead using the top knock button, which removes from the pencil body to become a small hand-held eraser. Unscrew the pencil body above the grip area to insert refill lead.
Pencil dimensions: 5.6 inches (14.3 cm) long and 0.5 inches (13 mm) in diameter at widest point on grip.
I love this pencil and find clicking the lead forward by bending it easy and
fun. I would give it 5 stars EXCEPT for the stylish but poorly designed top
cap. It is inconvenient to remove for erasing and too easy to lose! Will I buy
another one? Yes.
This pencil is awesome!
I don't hold my pens/pencils traditionally, I literally end up wrapping my
entire hand on the pencil. The high grip, helps me write more precisely. The
colorways are beautiful!
And the convenience of the bending motion to extend the lead is just
I suggest this to all students! It is the one pencil that doesn't make your
fingers tired because of it's "fat" and high grip!
