The following is a guest review by my reader Baktasch; I took the photos and added the specification.
It has been a while since Gunther and I talked about reviewing this mechanical pencil. This pencil was a crowd-funded Kickstarter project by Team ISHUJA. I have missed the Kickstarter project but managed to get their Eco-Essential Pen from their store on their website. As this blog does not deal primarily with pens in general but with pencils, mechanical pencils and all things graphite related, I will elaborate on the Eco-Essential Pencil.
The body of this mechanical pencil is made of bamboo and aluminium. The pencil's mechanism is made in Japan according to ISHUJA. I personally find this pencil very light and unique for writing and sketching. Also the stylus cap is a nice design feature. The pencil comes in a box with four different colour rings and a flat tip. Hats off to the ISHUJA team for this superb design!
- Length: 150 mm (capped), 122 mm (uncapped)
- Diameter: 11.6 mm (cylindrical)
- Weight: 18 g (with cap), 13 g (without cap)
- Lead feed: 6.5 mm per 10 clicks
- Markings: none (except for the “U” on the spare tip)
Thank you, Baktasch!
