Mechanical Pencils

Sometimes we think we should be called Cult Mechanical Pencils. We have more types of mechanical pencil on sale than anywhere else we know of and there's something about them that excites much interest. There's an amazing variety available, from less than £1 to over £100, but they're all amazingly durable and even the cheapest can give years of service and is endlessly refillable. In the Cult Pens office, mech pencils are frequently used simply because they're reliable, erasable, cheaply refilled and just interesting.

Mechanical pencils can be used for drafting, drawing or writing and we have models suitable for any or all of these. The most interesting mechanical pencils are probably from Japan, where they are hugely popular. Check out the latest development in this field - the amazing Uni Kuru Toga self-sharpening pencil! The wealth of features available can be overwhelming, and we try and make sense of them all for you on our Pencyclopedia page. Highlights in our line-up include the Pentel Kerry and Pentel Graph 1000; the OHTO Promecha range; the Platinum Pro-Use range; the Faber-Castell e-motion and the rotring 600. For the luxury option, it's hard to beat anything by Graf von Faber-Castell.

A full list of mechanical pencils follows. Use the filters to refine this list by lead size, advance mechanism, body colour or material, or use these buttons for some of the most common lead sizes:
