The Faber Castell’s Alpha Matic is one of the best mechanical pencils in the world. Rarely anything can match the quality of these pencils and the unique mechanism of action invented by Faber Castell which is rarely seen; the lead advances automatically itself with a slight pressure/push applied while writing/drawing. When it comes to precise, smooth and uniform writing a mechanical pencil is the best choice. Mechanical pencils are ideal for sketching, drawing and writing. The common characteristic of the Alpha-matic pencils are the design and the automatic mechanism. You can use the pencil like a standard “click and advance” device or you can click a few times just to have the lead in position, then the pencil will advance the lead for you. The push knob is removable to access the eraser. The pencil feels solid in the hand and comfortable with an amazing grip due to the super heavy knurled grip section. The body of the pencil has a bordeaux color, the mechanism is solid brass and steel which make the pencil heavy, beautifully balanced with a great feel while writing. GERMANY is engraved at the right side of the clip of the pencil. The logo of the company is engraved at the clip of the pencil. It’s a great pencil with ultimate quality. This extravagant writing instrument is in a mint condition with minimal signs of use, perfectly functional.
About the company: Faber-Castell is the world's oldest pencil manufacturer. Pencil-makers were first recorded in the imperial city of Nuremberg around the year 1660. Numerous craftsmen also set up shop in the surrounding villages, but especially in Stein, just within the Marquisate of Ansbach. Here artisans were not subject to the same strict controls as in Nuremberg, so they had a competitive advantage. One of them was the cabinet-maker Kaspar Faber. At first he worked for local traders, but in his spare time he produced pencils on his own account. Soon he became so successful that he was able to set up his own business. From these humble beginnings it was to develop into a company known all over the world.
