    Default Fyne Poynt



    I started buying Mabie Todd Fyne Poynt pencils to match them up with the corresponding pens for sale but quite soon I became so impressed with them that I've made a small collection, around twenty or so. There's a small unrestored selection above.

    I seem to have accidentally accumulated far too many pencils of all brands! That's OK. They're cheap compared with fountain pens and the designs are admirable.

    That creamy marbled one is my favourite.

    I got a Dace pencil a while back are they less Common than Fyne points as I never see them for sale. Even though correct me if I'm wrong there Swan pencils.

    Yes, they're Mabie Todd pencils. Though they overlap most Dace pencils are earlier than Fyne Poynt. Can you post a photo of your Dace pencil?

    I got a few months back in this job lot which to be honest it looked like a bunch of tat (about 80% was the mystery job lots are the most fun) but there were a few better pens in it.
    It did seem a cut above the generic no-name vintage pencils. Bit a google search turns up nothing. Thankfully I liked the finish so I kept hold of it.

    It wasn’t until a few weeks ago I got the swan Book I found out what it was see below.

    Goodness knows what the matching fountain pen would cost but I'd doubt I'd have change from £125.

    Those are pretty!

    I have a few teeny, tiny, skinny pencils -- I know one of them is a Sheaffer. Plus a vintage Montblanc with a lead size I'm not sure I can get anymore (i.e., easily).

    I was going to look at Pen Show Poland, which was scheduled for this weekend that just passed and is re-scheduled for September (hooray!). I suppose I could just ask Tom Westerich.

    Do these pencils use standard (i.e., easily available leads)? Or some special vintage size, like my Montblanc? Hahaha. (I'm gonna find extras one of these days. And then I'll be a wanton penciller!)

    Pencil leads is a big subject, ethernautrix. I have .9mm leads for Yard-o-Led pencils and I have another size (don't know what yet) on order for Fyne Poynt.

    American pencil leads are explained here: https://www.legendaryleadcompany.com...do-i-need.html

    In a job-lot of writing related stuff at auction a while ago I got lots of 2mm lead which I use in my Staedtler clutch pencil. I use it for drawing. I do a drawing about once a month. At that rate, my 2mm lead will run out in 3027.
