1. Pentel orenznero Auto-Advancing Mechanical Pencil - 0.2mm
The orenznero pencil is the first auto advancing mechanical pencil in the world that supports 0.2mm lead! The orenznero pencil is a break-resistant lead mechanical pencil that prevents a lead from breaking by its unique mechanism called ‘Orenz System’. The best thing about this pencil is the auto advancing function - once you press to advance a lead, the lead continues advancing automatically until it is used up. Therefore if you click the top of pencil only once, you can continue writing without having to press again!
