The Kaweco Sketch-up Pencil is a great choice for technical and artistic drawing as well as anyone interested in enhancing their creative journalling through sketching and colouring. The high-quality mechanism holds a sturdy line and comes with a 5.6 mm – 5B soft lead, a pencil sharpener in the removable pusher and is shipped in a nostalgic metal storage tin. One of the highlights of the Sketch-up is the metallic body that gives this pencil a special feel in your hand that enhances your drawing/sketching experience.
Please note that the Brass pencil will tarnish over time and the Brilliant and Black versions will scuff to develop a lovely patina that will make your pencil a unique creation!
Turn your Sketch-up pencil into a highlighter or coloured pencil with the Highlighter Mix or All Purpose Coloured 5.6 mm leads which may be purchased separately.
Note that when removing or inserting a new lead, this should be done through the tip of the pencil rather than at the push button end. As well, when extending/retracting the lead, pressing and holding the pusher button opens the metal clutch mechanism and allows you to set the length of the exposed lead with your fingertips.
