Founded in Chicago in 1913, Autopoint produces classic writing instruments for everyday use. Now made in Wisconsin, their mechanical pencils have an appealing retro style. Their Twinpoint design features two different lead colors at alternate ends--ideal for editing, highlighting, or sketching. The paneled plastic barrel is comfortable to hold and the patented Grip-Tite tip prevents wobble and lessens lead breakage. Available in black/red and blue/red combinations of 0.9 mm leads.
