Metal Shop Raw Metal Bullet Pencil

Protect the point of your pencil with Metal Shop’s raw brass and aluminum bullet pencils. Originally given away as souvenirs by agricultural companies, the bullet pencil has transformed from novelty to necessity for pencil lovers. Insert your favorite wooden pencil into the machined casing and get writing. If you happen to make a mistake, its large eraser allows for quick corrections. When it’s time to pack up and go, cap the pencil and secure it to your pocket using its integrated clip. Hand machined in small batches, each Metal Shop bullet pencil comes with a numbered card including the date of manufacture and signed by the machinist who made it. If pencils aren't your thing, be sure to check out the available pen insert as well.

submitted by beyadika Here is the typical load out for me:-Fallkniven U1 Slipjoint knife, smooth bone handle, 3G steel-Keys with Photon light and Alox Swisschamp-Notebook, Lamy Fountain Pen, Cross Rollerball pen, and 0.5mm Pentel Pencil-Seiko skx007 on  leather strap-Handkerchief-Vagabond Traveler Leather Wallet-Fenix LD10, great single AA flashlight Editor’s Note: Nice, full loadout.
