DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
Tombow's Olno Swift mechanical pencil pulls off a neat trick. A clue is in the name "Olno," which is derived from "oruno," the Japanese word for "bend." Lead is advanced by bending the body, due to the pencil's unique "body knock" mechanism. While in writing position, simply move your thumb up to the three grooves on the rubber grip and press firmly to bend the pencil. With this innovative mechanism, you do not need to completely shift your hand position to extend more lead while writing. The pencil also includes the conventional mechanism, allowing you to advance lead by clicking the pencil top.

The rubber grip covers the whole bottom part of the pencil, so that writing and body knock clicking are comfortable. The glossy metallic upper part and metal clip give the pencil its composed style. The top has a refillable capped eraser, and the tip has a 4 mm guide pipe, which is ideal for drafting and provides stability. Lead is inserted by unscrewing the body just above the rubber grip.

This Lime body is a limited edition color.

Did recieve a dud...?

Just got this in the mail today and I was so excited at first! I've been using the original Olno for about a year now and thought it was time for an upgrade. However, I found this extremely disappointing in concerns to the body knock function. With my original Olno, pressing on the mechanism feels firm and gives a reassuring click. I can even rapidly press on it and the lead will extend fast! On the Swift I recieved, that's not the case.It feels loose and "cheap". I have to fight with it to extend the lead which really sucks because I do love the quality of the pencil's body itself. the body knock mechanism just doesn't seem to be acting right...

I hope maybe Jetpens would be open to do an exchange. If not, I guess I'll have to invest in another Swift because although the body knock is very iffy and frustrating to work with, I do love how the pencil itself feels when holding it and I know that this upgraded Olno should be responding WAY better than this. :(

This is my second Olno Body Knock pencil. I'm so glad I swiped this limited edition pencil! It's a much heavier duty pencil compared to the standard one I have in citrus yellow. I really like the way it writes!

I think this is an awesome awesome pen. I have been using this pen for about 2 years and half now, and I am very surprised to see that I am still able to use it. The body is a little bit dirty, but it is totally expectable because I have no idea how many times I dropped it to the floor. Very comfortable when you are holding it (I personally spin the pen all the time during classes and this pen is the best pen ever for that). I love it so much. Five star!!!

Just like the cheapie version, this thing is amazing. It has the added heft and the attached clip is nice so the thing wont roll away like the cheaper version. But both are so worth the money and the natural flex click is just the best design in the world.

At first, I loved this pencil. I love the grip and that it's made of metal rather than plastic. However, after just a few weeks of use, it no longer advances the lead at all. I don't know why, but am very disappointed!
