Titanium is as strong as steel but 45% lighter, all while being unaffected by metal fatigue and cracking. These are the main reasons why titanium is used for parts that spend thousands of reliable hours in the air inside jet engines. Not only is it strong and light, but it has great corrosion resistance. It really is an incredible material.
Copper is one of the few metals that occurs in nature in directly usable metallic form as opposed to needing extraction from an ore. Copper on its own can be soft and dent easily, so by adding tellurium we make it stronger and easier to machine. It also offers natural antimicrobial properties for those worried about germy hands. Copper will patina over time.
Bronze has been used for centuries to make ship fittings and seafaring equipment and more recently found its place firmly in the high-end diving watch industry. It has a vintage-like matte patina, which differs from pen to pen depending on the owner's environment and lifestyle, making each pen beautiful in its own right. Its most outstanding property is its ability to resist corrosion even in seawater. Bronze weighs about 10% more than stainless steel. It reacts with oxygen, which results in its distinctive patina. This is the only bronze C52100 pen out there: a bronze typically reserved for high-end watches.
Stainless steel’s excellent resistance to corrosion and staining and low maintenance is why it's the most used material in the high-end watch industry -- making it a great choice for a pen.
Your stainless steel pen will keep its clean sleek look even in the harshest environments. The pen is not too heavy, but heavy enough to feel the heft of quality. It will not dull or patina over time. It is very easy to take care of and will become a trusted member of your life.
Mechanical pencils are the tool of choice for most drawers, drafters, designers, and writers but the size of lead used is a constant point of debate and comes down to personal preference.
Technical Details: Made from 100% metal. Parts are made from raw brass, chrome plated brass and stainless steel.
When selecting your lead size remember that the Modern Fuel mechanical pencil body can accept any of the three mechanism sizes and they are interchangeable depending on what you are working on.
It's well known that a 0.5mm mechanism is a great choice for fine work and details. It is the most common mechanical pencil lead size and is great for many tasks including fine detail work, sketching, writing and technical drawing.
For those that need a bolder line or switch from writing, sketching and less detailed technical drawing, a 0.7 lead is a great choice. The width of the 0.7mm line is very similar to a ballpoint or rollerball pen.
If you are making the switch from pen to pencil a 0.9mm mechanism is a great choice or if you are an artist that enjoys shading you will be pleased with the weight of the 0.9mm lead. The 0.9mm lead is closer to the size of the original mechanical pencil leads from the late 1940’s. The lead is still good for writing, sketching and with some control, you can have strong solid lines our light shading.
Whichever sized lead you chose you can be confident you are going to get a consistent and smooth line and remember you can always switch it out for another size.
Includes: 0.9mm mechanism, tube of lead, Allen key
Very well made. Can’t wait to get a fountain pen from you!
Very good quality
The mechanism is working perfectly and I really enjoy writing with .9
Best pencil ever.
Writes wonderfully. Thinking of buying another one. Best pencil ever.
Essential for Writing Cursive
I prefer a lead 0.9 to 1.3 mm for writing cursive for hours at a time. This is the first 0.9 mm mechanical pencil I’ve found that feels good to write with. First day, I picked it up and ended up writing for pages. Brillaint!
Pencil mechanism 0.9m
When I ordered the Modern Fuel pencil I ordered the mechanism because I prefer 0.9m. Found making the change difficult until I watched Andrew’s YouTube video. Am so very pleased with this pencil.
