I know a few of you out there are quite keen on customizing and modifying your mechanical pencils. Here’s a little inspiration for you, just in case you haven’t already seen it. Over in Japan, Isu of the The Uncomfortable Chair blog likes a bit of modifying too. He recently sent me one of his modified pencils, the Pentel Graph 600 2.0mm. It started out in life as a Pentel Graph 600 0.5mm, but surgeon Isu transplanted some innards from (I think) a Stilus Secolgraf 151 Totmina 2mm leadholder to make the Graph 600 2.0mm. Those big clutch jaws look kind of freaky. For full instructions see the four instalments on Isu’s blog.
