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.


Twist Bullet Pencil Bullet pencils are an almost-forgotten writing utensil that protected pencils from wear and tear and added features such as a clip and an extra eraser. Metal Shop CT and Huckleberry Woodchuck are Kickstarting a revival of this American artifact while putting a modern spin on the product. CNC-machined aluminum or brass bodies can be customized to your preferred tip style while lending durability to your pencil nub of choice. Now with a pen add-on, the Twist is available for just 4 more days, and then it’s history… again.

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
-Vagabond Traveler Leather Wallet
-Fenix LD10, great single AA flashlight
Editor’s Note: Nice, full loadout. I can see you have multiple tools (pens especially) for specific tasks. The redundancy here also serves to add extra versatility, which is great if you have no problems carrying a little more. I like the Fallkniven, it’s a great gentleman’s knife...

Rotring 600 Roller Ball
Maratac AAA
iPhone 4
MAKR one wallet
My Bag EDC :
+ Gerber Multitool
+Camera (either Canon G9 or FujiFilm X10)
+Larger Moleskin notebook + Caran D’Ache pencil Editor’s Note: Interesting carry, nice and streamlined too. Everything looks good together and should work cohesively, though if I had to make a suggestion I’d say maybe look into the Spyderco Ladybug SS to replace your KISS. It’s another small minimalist knife that would fit your aesthetic but has better steel, but no pocket clip unfortunately… Otherwise, keep it up, and thanks for sharing!

hypsterism: Uni Shift 0.5 drafting pencil x Tombow Mono Zero rectangle eraser Editor’s Note: everyone likes this combo apparently…
but real talk, i ditched those two and stick to Boxy X Sharbo.

Editor’s Note: Wow, this really made my morning. If you guys have a minute please follow @JetPens and be sure to take a look around their site — they have been my #1 source for quality pens and pencils. This is the best way I can say thanks to them, so please check them out. I’m a huge fan of the Zebra Sharbo X, and JetPens is giving me the opportunity of trying out the slimmer LT3 model. Thanks JetPens, congratulations on the 1000 followers, and thanks to all of my readers and followers as well! B)

youmightfindyourself: My two favorite writing utensils, together at last. They don’t make the Lamy Scribble murdered-out edition anymore, I got the last one muahahahaha. Editor’s Note: YMFY’s murdered out pair of the CountyComm Embassy Pen and Lamy Scribble 3.15mm Pencil.
