Mark Three

A Minimal and Durable Mechanical Pencil
Mark Three is a custom machined mechanical pencil with a ceramic based exterior coating for long lasting durability. It comes with 0.7 mm lead, but it’s easy to swap in a 0.5 mm lead advancer.

Nothing in the way.
Mark Three has a seamless body, with a matte black or white finish, and the cap on the end is polished steel, either plain or coated in PVD copper. No logos or excessive ornamentation to be found here. We consider it a sibling to our Mark One retractable pen, and they will look great on a desk next to each other.

Made to last a lifetime.
Mark Three is incredibly durable. It is made entirely out of metal, and coated with Cerakote, an extremely durable ceramic-polymer coating (technical specifications for Cerakote). It gives the pen a really nice, matte feel. The lead advancing mechanism is very easy to replace, should it ever fail. This pencil should last a lifetime.

Hidden under the end cap.
What’s a pencil without an eraser? Mark Three includes a small one, which is hidden underneath the end cap. It is a standard size and replacements are easy to find when it wears down.

Stylish and oddly Motivating

Thank you Studio Neat for resolving my little problem with the wrong size leads/mechanism. Now that it's working correctly - I love this writing tool. Its super stylish and oddly, motivates me to do more writing than usual. Which is a good thing.

Poor communication

While I love your products, as I have at least 6, but you get an F in communication ! I have emailed, left voicemails, and not a single response.

Hi Herbert, I searched our email and it looks like we have responded to all of your emails. Did you check your spam folder?
