Mechanical Pencil Gallery

The pencils shown may look like a whole lot of the same thing, but there are subtle differences in the tapers and curvatures of the grip as well as the pattern of the wood grain. Be aware of your preference of a thicker or thinner grip.

Some of the tapers are very thin, about the thickness of the metal tip. So, in picking a pencil, pay attention to the thickness of the grip area.
The pocket clips can be slid up or down to suit your preference.

The pictures are broken into groupings of about 20 or less to aid those with handheld devices. I hope this will make life easier for the small screen folks.

To request specific pencils, request size (.5 or .7), tapered or flared, the number next to the pencil and the wood (eg. .5mm, tapered #5, cocobolo).
There is a link to an email form below all the pictures, right above the word "Prices". I will get back to you confirming availability and total cost.

We will hold items on reserve for one week pending payment.

In stock now:
The numbers on the pictures correspond to those on the wood list.
Reserved and sold pencils will be labeled as SOLD beside the wood identification. (updated 4/26/2024)
Please, DO NOT request pencils that have been labeled as SOLD.

NOTICE OF RETIREMENT 12/9/2023 -- Being 78 years of age, and having been a professional production woodturner for over 50 years, it's time to pack it in.
This will be the last full restocking of the pencil gallery page. Future rewrites of this page will be condensing it to eliminate sold pencils to improve viewability.

VIEWING TIP If the pictures and print are too small, do a CTRL+ on your keyboard. On most browsers, it will enlarge the screen image. CTRL- brings it back down.
