  • A man of many talents - botanist, zoologist, physician, and linguist - Conrad Gessner (1516-1565) was the Divinci of his era; he was one of the first to document the pencil. Taking cues from his sketches and descriptions, Cleo Skribent created its own version. Turned from one single piece of wood, the  Gessner Pencil  features a stylish finial end that closely resembles a chess piece. Its lead is held in place by a wooden shim that’s easily removed for quick lead changes. Packaged in a remarkable luxury wooden gift box along with a jute pouch, penknife, eraser and sanding block that acts as a pencil sharpener.

    • Pencil compatible with 5.6mm lead
    • Luxury wooden box includes: jute pouch, eraser, penknife and sanding block

    In 1945, after WWII, founders of Cleo Skribent started a business producing writing instruments out of a garage. They used their skills and knowledge of craftsmanship to create fine writing tools using a process, similar to that of ancient Egyptians, and consequently named their first collection after Cleopatra. Their ink pens “Skribents” were introduced years later. Today, Cleo Skribent continues production in Germany and is known worldwide.

    Pencil dimensions: 6.3 x 0.6” (16 x 1.5 cm)
