The e+m "Workman" 5.5mm Clutch Pencil set contains e+m’s most successful Workman Short clutch pencil and includes a Black Round Disk pencil rest/pencil sharpener to hold your pencil and keep your lead point sharp at all times. The Workman Clutch Short pencil is a pocket-sized sketching and drawing tool that is handmade in Germany with a European style that features a Black Stained FSC-certified Beechwood barrel with Stainless Steel trim. This clutch pencil was handmade on classic wood turning machines using traditional Bavarian techniques. The Stainless Steel push-button end cap advances the 5.5mm or 5.6mm lead, which is held in place by the clutch, a jawed pressure clamp. Press and hold the end cap button to open the clutch to reload your lead. The e+m Workman Clutch pencil set comes packaged in a green and silver graphic gift box. This is the perfect drawing, sketching or highlighting tool for artists, architects or any creatives!
This e+m Workman Clutch pencil uses FSC-certified wood, which can be shown to come from forests that meet the internationally recognized principles and criteria of the Forest Stewardship Council. Environmentally appropriate forest management ensures that the harvest of timber and non-timber products maintains the forest's biodiversity, productivity, and ecological processes.
Why Use a Clutch Pencil?
Consistency, comfort, balance. The clutch pencil body size never changes as the lead is used and it maintains a fairly consistent weight and balance. Artists who spend long periods of time shading with regular pencils can get frustrated as the pencil shortens. A clutch pencil adds precision and reliability, so many artists prefer using them when drawing for hours at a time.
