Kickstarter has been known to be the progenitor of many great inventions, so it comes to no surprise that another handy creation has surfaced on the funding platform.

Titled the “Handmade Everlasting Mechanical Pencil Mark II,” each drawing tool is a beautiful writing instrument created with quality in mind. Inspired by the concept of pencils typically being viewed as disposable tools and valueless, creator Nicholas Hemingway set out to create a writing tool that could serve as long-lasting companions.

Arriving in three separate material compositions of aluminum, brass and stainless steel, each handmade piece comes with a choice of 0.3, 0.5, 0.7 and 0.9mm lead thickness to suit your personal style.

If you’re interested in purchasing a piece, be sure to head over to Kickstarter to contribute to the project.
