Penxo Pencil

Winner of the prestigious Red Dot Award, Penxo is a beautifully designed minimalist aluminum pencil that skips all the fussy parts. The simplistic design eliminates the springs, buttons, and mechanical parts found in conventional mechanical pencils, Penxo uses old-fashioned gravity to slide a 2mm lead in and out. Made from a single block of aircraft grade aluminum, the sleek writing instrument features a centre window gap that functions as a lead trigger release, it also allows the user to quickly check the color/label of the lead in usage, and allows for air flow under your fingertips, reducing sweat and providing a better grip. watch the video
 
Penxo is now available for pre-order (special price of $25) at Kickstarter in three discrete colors.
