BoO Barcelona based in Spain has created a new lead holder or propelling pencil constructed from carbon fibre providing a lightweight easy-to-use sketching, note taking and drawing tool that is capable of accepting a wide variety of different leads.
now available to back via Kickstarter early bird pledges are available from €55 or roughly £49 and If all goes well worldwide shipping is expected to take place during March 2019. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Carbonara pencil.
“Carbonara pencil is the first lead holder where carbon fiber has a real purpose and it is the main focus. We have always wanted to design with carbon fiber, but we didn’t just want visual elements without a real use. For this reason, we have been working the technical characteristics of carbon fiber for more than a year, to develop a 2 mm lead holder which can only be produced in carbon fiber: CARBONARA pencil.”
“The Carbonara pencil doesn’t have any mechanisms and it works through bending of the carbon fiber 3K sarga with a bidirectional fiber orientation and aluminum 5000 serie. This set acts as a pen. When you press the carbon fiber it opens and the lead slides out and when you stop pressing, it closes.”
