Writing by hand is thinking on paper.
The mechanism of the Leuchttrum1917 Drehgriffel mechanical pencil is made in Germany. When the twistable head is turned, the tip opens and the graphite is pushed forward at the same time. When the twist mechanism is released, the tip closes and holds the graphite in place. Inside there is a chamber that holds several refills at once and immediately pushes the next one forward when the other has been used up.
Founded in the year 1917, LEUCHTTURM can now look back on over 100 years of experience in the manufacture of high-quality stationery. The family firm is now in its fourth generation, with Axel and Max Stürken managing the company since the 90s. They are guided by the idea of producing well thought-out notebooks, journals and planners which meet customers’ high standards of quality. When developing products, they pay attention to every detail – because details make the difference. Characterized by a love of the product, functional details, outstanding quality and a wide range of colors. LEUCHTTURM1917 is led by the conviction: thoughts grow into words, sentences and pictures. Memories become stories. Ideas are transformed into projects. Notes inspire insight. We write and understand, learn, see and think – with the hand.
