Pencil snobbery? You betcha. Whether you prefer your pencil of the Japanese variety or more traditional in nature, the Rotring 600 Drafting Pencil ($30) will likely give pause to any jaded engineer, architect or writer. Built in Japan, this 18 gram beefcake scrawler sports an all metal brass body with traditional knurled grip, lead grade indicator and clip. Unfortunately, it doesn’t include a “#2 pencils are for peasants” bumper sticker.
