AmazonBasics Mechanical Drafting Pencil

AmazonBasics Mechanical Drafting Pencil

The AmazonBasics Mechanical Drafting Pencil is an affordable tool that is designed to compete with high-end professional pencils like the Pentel Graph Gear 1000.

The AmazonBasics pencil is most directly related to the Rotring Rapid Pro mechanical pencil, with which it shares many features and design cues.

The pencil is sold in 0.5 mm and 0.7 mm sizes and has many of the features of a professional, drafting pencil, like colors indicating the lead size, knurled metal grip, removable clip, and a lead hardness indicator.

This is a double-knock style pencil so it’s great for taking with you without worrying about damaging the fragile lead pipe.
