The Apollo Mechanical Pencil from Faber-Castell is a premium-quality instrument designed to unleash your creative potential. It is a popular choice for students and professionals, offering a reliable and consistent experience. The pencil can be used for a huge variety of projects, ranging from writing and bullet journalism to design and engineering. Whatever your plans are as a creative, the Apollo pencil is a great accessory to help you along the way.
The pencil is produced from hard-wearing plastic with a triangular-shaped barrel. It features a rubberised grip section with a broad rib design, providing you with extra comfort and control over the tool. It comes complete with chrome elements and has a built-in eraser hidden discreetly underneath the click-action button. To use the eraser, you simply pull the button to remove the cap and replace it when you're done. The pencil is filled with 0.7mm B graded leads and includes an additional tube of twelve leads to keep your creativity flowing. The pencil can be refilled multiple times and is compatible with any 0.7mm graded pencil leads.
If you like to design and illustrate, the Apollo pencil is ideal for use with drawing tools, templates and stencils. The precision lead-width ensures you will create consistent lines, details and designs. If you're using stencils you just need to ensure that you have the right kind of lead width. For example, this pencil is compatible with 0.7mm stencils (this mainly applies to lettering stencils). If they are large stencils (such as geometry or shape stencils) the pencil will work perfectly regardless of the lead width.
