Britain's premiere fine writing instrument producer, Yard-O-Led can trace their lineage back almost two centuries. Their name derives from the fact their pencils have always housed 12 three-inch graphite lead lengths, making a 'yard of lead.
Still based in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham, England, their workshop houses only a handful of craftsmen who carefully handmake each individual pen. With such heritage then, it's no surprise to see the quality of materials employed by Yard-O-Led. Indeed, the hallmark found on all their pens and pencils signifies the 925 parts per 1000 of Sterling Silver in the instrument's metal parts.
