Tombow Zoom 505 Mechanical Pencil - Black 0.5mm
Since 1986, the classic form of the Zoom 505 series has gained many fans. Its simple, sophisticated elegance is present throughout the design. The strong, yet light aluminum body has an attractive metallic finish and features a rubber grip to prevent slipping. The combination of aluminum and rubber creates an interesting texture and striking look.
The wide body form and rubber grip make for a comfortable and secure hold. The low center of gravity allows it to be well-balanced for you to be comfortable throughout long writing sessions.
The lead size appears on the top of the cap for easy identification. To advance the lead, push down on the top of the pen with or without the cap posted. It also comes with an eraser, which you access by unscrewing the top half of the body. The eraser is refillable.
