Because writing tool... matters. / Modern Fuel Mechanical Pencil

I was excited to come back to the studio to find a box full of these beauty - Modern Fuel Mechanical Pencil.

Frido funded Andrew's kickstarter project last year hoping that he will get the pencil in time for Christmas. Well... when Frido finally handed me the pencil early spring, I didn't mind the wait. I was beyond thrilled. We have both used the pencil for last six months to really feel it out as we often do with the products we decide to carry. 

I love that parts meet so seamlessly that it looks as if it is made out of one piece. I love the pencil weighs (definitely heavier than its plastic counterpart) letting you know gently that this pencil "is" different. My brass pencil surface is getting nicely patina.  

I also enjoyed back and fourth conversation I had with Andrew. I asked him "what if the pencil breaks for some reason??" and he told me that he is happy to take a look and repair it as needed. For the artifacts that are meant to last for a very long time..., it's so important that we feel that we are all in this together. 

I have been carrying it in the Essential leather zipper pouch with my Traveler's Notebook . With an ever changing schedule on my planner, I have been preferring erasable writing tool over pens these days. And nothing like a great tool to have nearby wherever I go:) 

If you are interested, you can find the pencil here at our shop. I am ordering their aluminum version as well so please feel free to send us an email if you are interested! (

Happy Sunday evening:)
