2022 Retraktable Re-Launch Special Release
The Retraktable Slim mechanical pencil is a slender version of our Retraktable mechanical pencil. Based on our Retrakt pen, the Retraktable was first designed as an adaptation of a standard Retrakt. The Retraktable Slim is designed to better match the external diameter of a pencil with our own style and functionality cues machined into the look and feel of the pen. There are two available grip options that will be used for the Retraktable Slim: a frag pattern and a ringed-chamfer pattern. This is the frag pattern that is a slim, tapered body that features machined grooves and bisecting lines in what has become known as “frag”. This has become the grip section profile of 2022 with us releasing it on almost all of our pens. These pencils will feature our custom-designed, in-house machined pencil button; ensuring smooth, consistent operation. This is part of our Retraktable Re-Launch that features the Brass, Copper, and a selection of Special Release colorway options.
The Shop Colors Frag Retrakable Slim features a slimmed take on our Retrakt V2 pen, this particular version features our new “frag” grip profile for better grip when writing, along with our custom-designed, in-house machined button mechanism. These pencils have been heavy tumbled and then sent out for matte grey anodize on the bodies that is nice and dark. Grey can be a problematic color to anodize as it is often the cool grey that has blue in it; luckily this is a warm, dark grey that looks just like we like it. We’ve chosen to pair this with matte dark red hardware that consists of anodized button mechanism and clip with black chrome Torx Plus fasteners. Our mechanisms are designed, machined, and assembled in-house giving us more control over the process to eliminate manufacturing defects. You’ll also be prompted to select from 0.5mm or 0.7mm lead insert before adding the item to your cart. Ships with a Pentel Hi-Polymer eraser.
