ARTIST'S SKETCH PENCILS

Each of the Artist Sketch Pencils is individually hand made by Rodney Neep. No two are the same. They are unique! When you buy a Rodney Neep artist sketch pencil, you select an individual pencil from those currently offered for sale below. I don't make many of these exclusive pencils!

I make the Artist's Sketch Pencil (Mechanical Pencils) in various types:

  • Mangum Pattern: 0.5mm Lead Mechanical Pencil
  • Slim: 0.5mm Lead Mechanical Pencil
  • Large : 5.5mm Lead Clutch Pencil


Above The "Mangum" Pattern Pencils (0.5mm lead)
Features a large diameter grip

  • Length 143mm overall
  • Grip Diameter 14mm
  • Lead 0.5mm


Above: The Slim Pencil (0.5mm lead)
This is basically the same pencil as the "Mangum", just with a slim body, and in this example, with a gold centre band. (This one is made of Yew sapwood)

  • Length 143mm overall
  • Grip Diameter 8.5mm
  • Lead 0.5mm
  • With or without the metal centre band


Above: Large Clutch Pencil 5.5mm lead
A large chunky body 14mm diameter, and 120mm long. Press the plunger at the top to release the lead. Unscrew the plunger and there is a lead sharpener inside. Desings may vary slightly in detail, but most have one or two hexagonal sections (the centre band and/or the top) which prevent the pencil from rolling on your desk.

  • Length 120mm
  • Diameter 14mm
  • Lead 5.5mm
