Extremely fine point for drawing
on the left, standard point for
writing on the right



     Leadholders require different points due to the variety of applications they are used for:

  • A blunt point for normal writing and 
  • A very sharp point for drawing

     The triangular symbols next to the small holes indicate the different kinds of points.

     The fine, sharp point on the left is suitable for drawing, the normal point on the right (shown         as being slightly blunt) is for writing. 

     The holes are used for setting the amount of lead protrusion.

     Note on use: 

     Place the leadholder point with the preset level of lead protrusion in the pointer’s main hole         and turn together with the lid in a clockwise direction until the resistance eases off.

     The lead is now sharpened.

     Any graphite dust on the lead can be removed by gently twisting the sharpened lead around       in the cleaning device (light-coloured hole in the bottom centre of the illustration).
