I've had my Midori pencil for over 2 years now. I use it mainly outside. It has been stood on, sat on, used for many other things apart from writing, and it still has not broken. In fact as it is brass it looks even better than when I bought it. So much so that I've just got another one for a friend. The pencil supplied is good quality, and refills are easy to get, but it will also take any normal sized round pencil if you need a different lead type. For years I looked for something like this.

Stunning pencil which will just get better with age.
Worth every penny and the refills are very reasonably priced too.
Great service, as always, from The Journal Shop.

Wow love this pencil, was pleased with the size just right to fit on my passport midori. Couldn't believe how light it is n feels real nice to write with. Use everyday with my diary. Had lots of different pencils but this one beats em all. Thanks again journal shop for such lovely stationary n super fast n friendly service.

Love this pencil and wish I'd known about
it earlier, having tried several others before!
Bright brass on arrival but will apparently darken with age which will be better :-)
Think I'll try changing to 'H' pencil rather than HB as I prefer this for writing - not sure I'll find one to fit tho. Otherwise all good!
Very Cool Pencil

Great looking pencil and very versatile. Great for taking notes on a daily basis. Would recommend to anyone.

This thing is cool looking. What's more if you want to use a different pencil in it you can simply chop your chosen pencil down to size and use some electrical tape to secure it into place.

Best thing ever for those tricky Sudokus & Codewords.
Rubber works brilliantly.

Not cheap, can't argue that it is. When you first hold it with the wooden pencil sticking out, it looks as though it will bend/snap - it doesn't. You could just jam an old golf pencil in the elastic of a midori notebook
, but that just feels.. wrong. Get this, ideally with the larger of the two pen holders. The short wooden pencil that comes with it is v. good quality. It will take (stubby) normal hex pencils, but the round ones will fit better. I like the darker vintage/distressed feel the brass gets after a while, although it goes through a greasy/dirty feeling stage first.

Great item. Trully handy, aesthetically beautiful and unexpectedly more comfortable to use than I thought. Great for carrying it inside your books, always ready for a note.

Midori Brass Pencil

What a great writing tool weather your on the move or not. I picked up the small leather pen holder too and clip the pencil into the loop, fit great on the top edge of the note book - more to buy yet.

Best pencil/rubber combination for Sudokos Crosswords Codewords etc etc. Brilliant.

Love this pencil

I love this pencil. I'm an editor and so mark up manuscripts all day for publishers – thsi pencil makes me want to go to work. It's a lovely thing. Nice all tarnished. Also nice all polished up.
Terrific Pencils and erasers.
by Steve Pitcher on 13 May 2013
Bought this one for myself and a white one for my wife, so she leaves mine alone. Best thing ever for those dastardly Sudokus
Its neatbut I haven't decided how to use it yet
by alan wann on 13 May 2013
I have other similar pencils with caps. they have a built in pencil sharpener and rubber which are very useful. This one is smaller so more likely to take on holls.
Pleasure to write with!

Nothing more to add. You don't want to lay down that pencil once started writing.
nice little pencil
by anonymous on 13 Jun 2011
The pencil is so beautiful and nostalgic. Very handy to use.
Easy to carry and use
by Pen Geek on 31 May 2011
Light but tough, with a 'utility' feel about
it, this wins respect from everyone who sees it because it's so practical, easy and comfortable to carry.
