MFD0000BRASS. In Stock N/A


A sleek, solid brass, American-made mechanical pencil that will last you a lifetime.

The mechanical pencil has become a throw away item.  They’re used by architects, designers, engineers and artists in studios all over the world, but they’re generally not items that you want to pull out of your pocket to show off.  The Modern Fuel Mechanical Pencil is here to change that and has has been awarded a CORE77 consumer products design award for its efforts.

This 0.5mm mechanical pencil is machined from one solid piece of brass, making it incredibly strong and durable.  So durable in fact, that we’re confident it will last you a lifetime.  If you ever have an issue with the pencil(s) you buy, we welcome you to send them back to us, and we’ll either fix your pencil or make you a new one.

The pencil is machined from a solid ⅜” brass 360 rod, giving it a great, heavy weight —  not too heavy to write with, but just enough to know that you’re holding a pencil that will last you a lifetime.  The weight of the pencil is perfectly balanced from end to end.

The Modern Fuel Mechanical Pencil has been designed to become part of you — an heirloom to pass on to the next generation of makers and doers.

We hope you enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed making it.


We were determined to design a mechanical pencil that would be a testament to U.S. design and manufacturing, reduce waste and not break the bank.  Having a single mechanical pencil that replaces the endless packs of plastic sitting in landfills and floating in our oceans can only be a good thing.

In our design we have removed all of the lines, grips and knurled perforations typical of traditional mechanical pencil designs.  This sleek design allows each pencil to be a blank canvas for its owner, to become worn in different ways over time and eventually take on the character of its user.

Each pencil is hand-finished to blend out the seams and give it the appearance of one solid piece of metal, and a brushed surface finish is applied to keep it from slipping through your fingers.

    If you use a pencil almost daily and thinking about buying it just buy it. You will not regret the purchase this pencil is worth every penny.

    The weight of the pencil presses down on the lead so writing take minimal effort.

    Great pencil, nice weight too. It may seem like a lot, but it pays off immensely. I will say the eraser seems to get rubbed off super quickly compared to some erasers, but other than that, great pencil.

Care instructions

Here you will find all of the information you need to keep your pencil in tip-top condition.

After some use, your brass pencils will have a nice patina on them. If you prefer the shiny new look, I have a nifty trick for getting it back to its original shiny state.  Simply soak a paper towel in vinegar, and then wrap the pencil in the towel for a few minutes, hey presto — shiny and new!  If you don’t have vinegar, or don’t like the smell of fish & chips, you can also use lemon juice.

Use the Scotch Brite pad that came with your pencil to refinish the outside of your brass or aluminum pencils as you see fit. These are great for buffing out any scratches you’ve collected along the way.  Simply wrap the pad around the pencil with some pressure and twist the pencil to begin buffing.
