Japanese stationery manufacturer sun-star recently announced a new “pencil” product, metal alloy pencil that does not need to be sharpened. Not only is the refill made of metal, which is novel, but it also does not need to be sharpened at all.
The product name “metacil” is easy to understand. It is the English combination of metal and pencil. It has an octagonal aluminum pen body and a special graphite alloy refill. The wear is very small. The graphite and alloy particles produced by friction with the paper when writing will adhere to the paper and produce handwriting. It is said that you can write for 16 kilometers continuously without sharpening the pencil!
You don’t have to worry about being unable to correct your writing. The eraser is erasable and is also ideal for painting. Not only is it smooth, but it won’t smear when it touches watercolors. You no longer have to worry about smudging your paintings.
