Art Pencil – 2 mm Clutch Pencil
Ref. : 250 300
Production Date : Circa 1980’s
The Art Pen range is well known, but there is more room in this line of products for some unusual items. The 2 mm Art Pencil is one of the best clutch pencil available (if you can find one). It got the same design and elements as a regular Art Pen, but the end of the barrel got a push button with visible spring to move the lead. On the other end of the pencil, the nib has been modified to adapt a standard 3 claws lead sleeve.
The pencil got no included sharpener, so Rotring produced a separate sharpener described in the post below. My pencil come with the full retail box, which is not in very good condition. The transparent plastic has yellowed and it got several minor scratches, but considering the rarity to this pencil, I was quite happy with my buy.
