Bamboo-style metal pencil - "regular"


Following on from the popular Number 9 pencil, my next pencil features an attractive bamboo-inspired grip pattern! The multiple concave sections give excellent grip in a wide range of positions. Metal choices are aluminium, brass, and stainless as before, but I'm happy to say I can also offer titanium, having gained experience working with this rather tricky metal.

For more information and background on my pencils, please have a look at the Kickstarter page for the Number 9 - it explains everything in greater detail.

Production times

These pencils are made to order - production times are on the order of 3-4 weeks. However, since I group orders together and make them in batches, it may be considerably quicker. I will obviously let you know the status as the order progresses. If you need one in a hurry for a present or whatever, please email me and we can sort something out.

Grooves or no grooves

The pencil is available either with or without the grooves in between the concave grip sections - you can specify this with the drop-down box in the order section.

Some examples

Below are several examples of different metals and groove styles. The top two are aluminium without grooves, the bottom two are brass with grooves. The bottom pencil also has a brass tip and cap - these are available separately.

Making of

Here's a quick clip of using a concave turning tool to make the sections on the pencil body:

Shipping charges - please read!

I am based in the UK and will ship anywhere in the world. I use Royal Mail's International Tracked & Signed service. UK shipping is £6. International shipping is £10. Unfortunately, because of PayPal's short-sightedness, I am unable to automatically specify different domestic/international shipping rates on the website (this feature is only available to US-based sellers). I have therefore set a default shipping charge of £6 on the website to cover UK shipping.

If you are shipping outside the UK, please click the button below to add £4 to cover the extra shipping cost:
