With its cool, unique look and glossy body, the Rotring Tikky mechanical pencil is a stylish and functional addition to any pen case. It sports the trademark Rotring red ring around its middle and has a triangular upper body. The grip has an alternating pattern of rubber and the plastic barrel. The rubber is soft to the touch for comfortable writing, and its plastic body makes for a lightweight tool. This mechanical pencil contains a brass mechanism which allows for precise lead advancement. A fixed lead pipe prevents lead breakage and offers a clear view of writing and drawing. The pencil has a strong clip and capped eraser.
