Dual-Action Mechanical Pencils feature shock-absorbing, cushion-point mechanism. The polymer-based, No. 2 lead reduces lead breakage and lead residue. Twist top raises and lowers the extra-large (1-1/4") vinyl eraser. Convenient push-action advances lead. The sliding sleeve retracts to prolong write-out and protect your pocket. Each pencil is made from 46 percent post-consumer recycled material.
