This pencil is named "Enpitsu", the Japanese term for a non-mechanical wooden pencil, due to the thick lead. They provide the versatility of a wooden pencil, allowing you to do anything from writing memos to illustrating. The soft elastomer body provides a comfortable grip. Safety features include a retractable tip that minimizes accidental pokes while the pencil is not in use.
In addition, instead of a cap that could get lost, the pencil has a top that does not come off, and lead can be inserted through it without removing any parts.
