• A pencil first for Pentel with their ultra fine, anti-breakage lead

        • Pentel’s latest product, Orenz, is a mechanical pencil with a few differences including the first 0.2mm fine lead and a tested anti-breakage system.

          Having been designed and developed in Japan, Pentel have showcased a promotional video of their new pencil, showing the strength of its lead.

          The Orenz has a one-click anti-breaking system that, once the lead has been prepared, doesn’t need advancing below the sleeve. Sales in Japan have been hugely successful and Pentel now hope that people across Europe, especially architects, designers, and artists, will grab one.

          Wendy Vickery, Pentel’s Marketing Manager, said, “the main difference between using the new Orenz and other existing mechanical pencils is that when writing with Orenz none of the refill lead protrudes below the metal sleeve. But, contrary to expectation, the sleeve doesn’t scratch the surface of the paper because it is rounded, to facilitate smooth writing or drawing.”

          Lead sizes in the range will include 0.3mm, 0.5mm and 0.7mm, in addition to the revolutionary 0.2mm designed suitably for planners and designers. Pencils will each have an integral eraser and will be supplied with full instructions.

          Wendy Vickery adds, “because Orenz is a unique product and we want to make sure that consumers enjoy the best possible experience of writing and drawing with this brilliant new pencil, our head office in Japan created a dedicated micro-site with clear instruction for use.”
