The world’s first knock-type mechanical pencil was released by PENTEL CO., LTD. in the 1960s, and in 1971 they developed an item with the concept of “a mechanical pencil used in the same way as a fountain pen”. Ever since its release this mechanical pencil has been referred to as “KELLY”, and now we have a new version that inherits the original design. The metal components used for the pencil create a comfortable weight balance. The longer tip similar to that of a drafting mechanical pencil provides high visibility and contributes to its exceptional performance. The fountain pen-design cap protects the delicate tip, and the overall size has been reduced to make it easier to carry around. The cap can be attached to the back when writing. The sensation of the metal parts smoothly attaching with a comfortable “click” is also a sign of this pencil’s high quality. The cap section comes in mat-silver and the body is given a glossy white shade. A delicately designed “Sanada-Himo” pattern is applied on the central brass section, which gives a sense of firmness when held in the hand. It has an elegantly modern presence that becomes part of the user’s everyday life.
