You can’t talk about mechanical pencils without mentioning the rOtring 600 mechanical pencil. It’s one of the most common options you’ll find in EDC, and for a good reason. It features a sleek, black metal barrel with a hexagonal shape to prevent it from rolling on your desk. Depending on your preferred lead thickness, there are multiple options for the rOtring 600. It also has an eraser and adjustable lead hardness indicator, making it easy to know which you’re using at a glance. The non-slip knurling combined with precision lead advancement makes for a great experience. Still, it’s worth noting that this particular model doesn’t have a retractable tip, so it’s best to carry it in a case or pouch to avoid accidental pokes through your pocket.
