It seems many of us had several of these popular pencils for school or at home or even at work. They are remembered as far back as the 40's and 50's. They may still be lurking in the recesses of a desk or a forgotten cigar box. The reason may be that leads and erasers are not easily found any more and so they're no longer used. The 1.1mm (0.046") leads almost never break and last for a long time. They are more than twice as thick as the more popular 0.5mm size and contain almost 5 times the volume of lead. This lead size is really great, but it's becoming very hard to find. Here is a chance to not only bring your pencils back to life but also to acquire more of these older pencils.

I specialize in the stronger .046” (1.1 mm) leads..046” actually calculates out to be 1.168 mm but is referred to as 1.1 mm. I also have smaller sizes available as well. You can also visit my Scripto History Page that displays older pencils, pencil parts and information about pencil leads. Today, although Scripto continues to market other items, all pencils and pencil products have been discontinued. Email to rogerr4@earthlink.net for ordering information. First class shipping is in a padded envelope for only $3.00 and for any quantity. Orders can be combined. When convenient, you can print out an Order Form to mail along with payment.

New Classic Scripto K21 Pencil Combos For Sale

 

 

The K21 is an improved Scripto design and has a translucent barrel. It still uses the same erasers and 1.1 mm leads as the Scripto Classic twist type. This is a push type of pencil instead of a twist action. You can easily push on the eraser with the thumb of your writing hand and the lead advances about 1/32" each time. The clutch is a single 3-prong piece made of solid brass and offers a firm grip on the lead. The plastic material of the barrel and some internal pieces is not brittle compared to the older K780 and is not prone to cracking.

Up to six extra leads can be stored inside the pencil. Each lead can be advanced automatically simply by pushing a couple of times on the eraser. The pencils are 5-3/4” long and weigh 3/10 of an ounce.

This new package contains one K21 pencil and a tube of six 4" HB polymer leads. There is also a spare lead in the pencil barrel. The pencils and tube of leads are mounted on a card. One corner of some cards may be clipped but the package remains unopened. Barrel color is available in translucent violet, blue or red. Available for $10.00 each.

K21 loading Instructions

 

The K21 pencil comes with a spare lead inside. After the first lead is used, just point the pencil down and make several clicks by pushing the eraser. The short remainder of the old lead will fall out, if it has not already, and the spare lead will then appear at the point. After the spare is used, you can add up to 4 extra leads by removing the eraser and placing them in the back. Replace the eraser and proceed to advance the new lead as before.

 

 

Green Scripto Classic K780 Pencils for Sale

The word Scripto is along the length of the clip and USA is stamped in very small letters on the top of the clip. The pencils are complete with an eraser and an HB lead. The pencils are 5-3/8” long and weigh 3/10 of an ounce. Available for $14.00 each.

 

Older Scripto twist pencil loading instructions

Hold the barrel of the pencil in one hand and twist the eraser holder clockwise with the other. Continue until the shuttle is all the way forward and the old lead, if any, is pushed out. Then return the shuttle as far back as it will go by turning the eraser holder counter clockwise. Insert the new lead at the pencil tip and then advance it until about 1/8” of the lead sticks out. Press the lead against a hard surface and the lead should move in about 1/16”. It is then locked in place and you are ready to write.

Scripto P670 0.7mm Cushion Point Pencil For Sale

Perhaps this pencil was an admission that thinner leads tend to break easily and this pencil would solve the problem. When the lead is pressed harder than normal, a fairly strong spring allows the lead to retract into the thin metal tube at the tip that supports it. It works very well as long as the lead extends no longer than 1/16” beyond the metal tube. Colors are yellow, red and blue.

It measures 5-5/8” long and 11/32” in diameter. It has a metal clip. The pencil is clutch operated. Pushing on the eraser advances the lead. Available for $5.00 each.

This is also a clutch action pencil and the lead can be advanced by pushing the metal cap. The pencil is 5-1/4” long and 5/16” in diameter. It weighs 9 grams or about 0.32 ounces.

The writing is just above the rubber grip and is normally hard to see.

Available for $9.00 each.

Polymer leads have become very popular in the past few years. They are different because they contain a plastic compound instead of clay. According to Pentel, “The composition if Hi-Polymer lead is synthetic resin and graphite which is said give a very strong and flexible lead. Conventional clay-bonded leads tend to be too brittle when reduced to the diameter required for fine lead pencils.” Despite this “breakthrough” in lead design, I find that the thinner polymer leads break far too easily compared to thicker leads, polymer or clay. It seems I am not the only person who has experienced this frustrating lesson.
