The pronunciation of “OLNO” means “bend” in Japanese. The Tombow OLNO mechanical pencil features a unique “body bend” mechanism to extend the lead. By simply bending the centre of the barrel, the lead can be smoothly extended. This feature makes the user easily extending the lead without moving from the pen grip at all. It also provides a conventional lead extending method via the knock button at the top. In addition, within this cute knock cap, hides a very handy hand held eraser.
Innovative body knock mechanism
Press the centre of the body (concave part of the grip) to bend it and advance the lead.
Operable with two different types of knock mechanisms.
Operable with both the ordinary crown knock and the body knock.
The rubber grip is longer, hence, ensures secure holding.
There is also an eraser inside the knock cap.
Separate the barrel to replace the ink cartridge
Hold the back of the grip to pull it out while turning the rear barrel and place a new ink cartridge in the tank inside the grip.
