The iconic rOtring 600 Mechanical Pencil is the ideal professional tool for technical writing, drawing and sketching. True to rOtring’s original design, the 600 features a full metal body and comfortable non-slip knurled metal grip. The ergonomically enhanced barrel provides an ideal balance of weight and feeling, so that you can work for long periods without discomfort or fatigue. The pencil’s unique hexagonal shape means it won't slide when you set it down, so it’s there when you need it. For precise ruler-based drawing, the sliding sleeve provides a high level of break resistance and an unimpeded view of the page.
