The Modern Fuel Pencil 2.0

View all 17 Photos

When the Modern Fuel Pencil made its debut on Kickstarter two years ago, the campaign raised over $130,000. Now designer Andrew Sanderson’s Modern Fuel Design brand launches the second, improved minimalist pencil. 2.0 enhances the original while maintaining the heirloom quality, minimal design, and impressive craftsmanship. Just like the previous version, Modern Fuel Pencil 2.0 is made in the US from a single piece of metal, using the highest manufacturing standards. As a result, the pencils last a lifetime, developing a natural patina that gives them more character.

Changes from the previous pencil include a custom metal internal mechanism for a 100% plastic-free product, a new retractable tip, an O’ring seal between the body and the cone, as well as the possibility to change the main mechanism and thus the lead sizes from 0.5 mm to 0.7 mm and 0.9 mm. The 2.0 minimalist pencil also comes with new material options which include titanium, copper, stainless steel, and bronze. A unique serial number hides inside each pencil, making every item one-of-a-kind.

Available now on Kickstarter, the Modern Fuel Pencil 2.0 has raised over $30,000 on the first day. Keeping in mind that the initial goal was only $5,000, and that with 44 days left at the time of writing the campaign has raised over $80,000, the acute need for beautifully designed products that defy the age of consumerism with their ‘buy once’ concept becomes clearer than ever. Whether you’re an architect, designer, artist, or lover of well-made things, you can support the campaign here. Every pencil comes with a Scotch Brite pad for maintenance, an eco-friendly cork case, and several other goodies. Photographs© Modern Fuel Design.
