Caran d'Ache maintains this reputation with their high quality writing instruments, which they have produced for more than 90 years. The sleek and reliable 844 mechanical pencil features a slim metal body that is perfectly balanced and feels great in the hand. Its smooth finish is finished with a contrasting chrome clip. Perfect for precision writing, especially for those times when a standard pencil is impractical. Takes 0.7mm lead.
