Designed by the award-winning Sergio Mori, the Forever Cuban is styled after a stubby Cuban cigar and made entirely by hand in Italy from FSC-certified maple wood.
Like a cigar, the Cuban is made to be held; this is a very tactile writing instrument. The Cuban is not only beautiful, it's clever too. Using a patented metal alloy tip (Ethergraf®) to produce a graphite-like line, it writes like a hard pencil, and its markings - which are lighter than a normal pencil - can even be erased like one. It works by leaving a bit of the 'lead' - or metal alloy - on the paper, but it wears down so slowly it should last for a lifetime of use.
The chunky body tapers from the middle of the pencil to each tip.
10cm long, 2cm wide.
Supplied in a cigar-style gift tin.
Also available with a base.
