Carpenter pencil makes mark with innovative lead

The new Husky Mechanical Carpenter Pencil is equipped with Dura Lead, which requires no sharpening. Dura Lead can be quickly shaped by rubbing it on a piece of sandpaper, concrete floor or any abrasive material. This allows the user to get closer to a speed square than with any other pencil.

The Husky pencil makes crisp, sharp lines right out of the packaging. The refillable pencil has a thick-bodied, high-impact ABS body to withstand job-site use. It is designed with as few parts as necessary to eliminate jamming due to sawdust, dirt and grime. The Dura Lead material, a mixture of clay and graphite, has medium density for smooth, dark lines on a wide variety of materials, including concrete. It is 18 percent thicker than the traditional carpenter pencil lead and lasts two to three times longer. The Husky Mechanical Carpenter Pencil is available exclusively at Home Depot stores.
