    Need help recognizing Riven Phoenix's mechanical pencil brand

    Hey Riven Phoenix is using this mechanical pencil which works like a wooden pencil except it has a metal/mechanical body. Can someone point me out which brand it is or any brand that does these types of pencils?

    Check out this YouTube video to see what the pencil look's like:

    It's called a lead holder or a clutch pencil.

    I have always wanted to try a lead holder. More specifically for usage of those colored lead sticks I've heard of. Have not seen any of late, though.

    Colored leads for clutch pencils are very hard to find, because I don't think they make them anymore. I got mine from a Russian guy who has an art supply shop on eBay.

    This is the set of 6 colored clutch pencils that I bought -- they're beautiful:

    The color lead refills are here:

    He also sells these which are dirt cheap:

    I've found myself wondering this while I stared at these clutch pencils in the art store: If the tip of these pencils is basically the same as a traditional tip..why spend the money buying the pencil, the special sharpener, and then all the lead refills, when the actual pencils themselves aren't all that expensive?

    clutch pens= less trees need to die to make the wooden casings of regular pencils
    since the body would be made of metal ( or something that looks like it) the only thing you use up would be the lead itself.

    The advantage of lead holders is that they offer the artist more versatility in shaping the lead. In a conventional wood pencil, you would have to carve through wood to shape it in certain ways. Without, you can use an X-ACTO knife, a sand block, or whatever to get the exact point desired.

    A small thing I want to ask... are lead holders commonly found in art stores? or should I look for them in a specialized place? I'm really looking forward to trying these

    You should find them in any art supply store that carries any professional drawing supplies (vellum, bond pads, ellipse templates, etc.). A store that only caters to weekend painters or craft-hobbyists may not carry these.

    Larger office supply stores like Staples also carry these in their drafting supply section (by the T-squares, set squares, and similar gear).

    The big thing for me is that I always have a full size pencil to work with, no drawing with stubbies.
