OHTO - Conception - Mechanical Pencil - 0.5mm - Green

The Conception Mechanical Pencil in green from OHTO works both as an advanced drafting pencil as well as a lead-guard writing pencil! 

It is simple to switch between the two modes for this mechanical pencil - twist the grip as far as it goes in a clockwise direction to use it as a drafting pencil, and twist the grip counterclockwise to use it in lead-guard mode.

As a drafting pencil, the Conception allows you to use its 4mm guide pipe to accurately draw straight edges while also allowing an unobstructed view of where the pencil tip meets the page. As a lead-guard writing pencil, the guide pipe becomes a sliding sleeve that retracts with the lead as you write, reinforcing the lead and allowing you to write for extended periods without having to extend the lead beyond the edge of the guide pipe.

This mechanical pencil also lets you adjust how far the lead extends with each click, which is controlled by a rotary at the end of the barrel which allows between 0.2mm and 2.00mm of lead to be advanced. An indicator on the barrel of the pencil shows the current setting.

OHTO was established in Tokyo, Japan in 1929 and began manufacturing high quality dyes & inks. The company has a long history of ink manufacturing as the founder of OHTO, Nakata Tozaburo, worked for the ministry of finance and invented a special ink for Japanese banknotes. Mr. Nakata went on to develop the first ballpoint pen manufactured in Japan in 1949. After the success of their 'Auto-Sharp' ballpoint pen, OHTO went on to design and manufacture the world's first rollerball pen in 1964.

The OHTO range now includes the original ballpoint and rollerball pens, as well as a range of writing instruments that suit your every need, from mechanical pencils to graphic liner pens, plus ceramic rollerballs, fountain pens and multi-function pens. OHTO continue to expand on their almost 100-year history of ink & writing instrument production by designing and developing new innovative products.
