The Kaweco SKETCH UP has a comfortable weight for writing and drawing because it is made out of brass. The raw version of the SKETCH UP is made without surface protection and the pen becomes a patina with the time. If you don't like that you can also go for the satin-chrome version. Perfect for sketching and drawing, especially with soft leads, this clutch pencil uses 5.6mm lead. Presented Kaweco metal tin box.

The earliest preserved copy of a mechanical pencil was found in the wreckage the HMS Pandora, which sank in 1791. The frigate was sent out to arrest the mutineers of the Bounty.
Kaweco has been producing all kinds of mechanical pencils since the beginning of the 20th century. The Kaweco clutch pencils had become very popular in the fifties, the heyday of technical drawing. Until this very day the clutch pencils of the SKETCH UP series are very popular among sketch artists.
