Magno is a 2mm lead mechanical pencil unlike any other. It offers lead position accuracy far beyond other pencils due to the free-moving magnet concealed within its premium grade aluminium body. Every unique detail has been considered to ensure you receive a quality product with the highest level of functionality. Other pencils may last a few weeks... ours lasts a lifetime.

The 2mm replaceable lead is held by a magnetic component concealed within the body of the pencil.
1. Once the end tip is rotated, the brass collet releases the lead.
2. The ferrous sleeve located around the outside of the body slides by hand to determine the length of lead. The ferrous outer sleeve moves the magnet and lead within the body.
3. The lead is secured again by rotating the end tip which tightens the collet.
Our main goal throughout Magno’s development has always been the technology modestly hidden within it’s minimalist aesthetic. Utilising such a unique system to propel the lead has enabled us to make a significant design step in the mechanical pencil industry.
Firstly, thank you so much for taking the time to read through our campaign. We hope you share even half the passion we have for Magno!
We are both Design Engineers who have worked in the manufacturing industry for a number of years. As Designers, we have a strong passion to innovate products where design has become stale and unchanged latterly in their existence. What better product then a pencil?
Using pencils on a daily basis, we noticed a number of faults and strongly believed there was a better product to be designed. The following one and a half years developing Magno became our lives, but it was 100% worth it.
All design work and machining prototypes have been done by ourselves. We also have a very good relationship with our manufactures and talk on a daily basis. This is essential to ensure we can easily monitor production and ensure the very best quality.
We feel so proud to finally offer this product to the Kickstarter community and sincerely hope you are able to help make our dream a reality.
Thank you for your time.

Risks and challenges
Firstly, we would be committed to excellent communication throughout the whole campaign, as we understand the importance of keeping our backers up to date on all developments (no matter how big or small).
Our focus has been to de-risk the campaign and overcome any potential concerns for our backers. These steps have involved; funding all the development costs, sourcing manufacturing partners with several rounds of samples and strategically planning the process post campaign.
The final way in-which we’ve eliminated risk on this project, is believing that we will deliver nothing less than the exceptional product we've promised! We have an unbelievable amount of belief in the concept and want to invite you on the journey of helping us to make Magno a reality.
