Drafting Lead Holders
Professional Style Drafting Lead Holders and Mechanical Pencils are slightly different than just a regular lead holder. The lead is specifically made for drafting and the holders are made to hold the lead. The Prismacolor Turquoise by Alvin is a very popular brand of drafting lead holders, built with quality in mind that will last a lifetime if cared for properly. It has been said that a Lead Holder marries the expression of a wooden pencil with the convenience of a mechanical pencil. Many people also call them "Drafting Pencils" but most all Drafting Instructors will tell you they should be called Lead Holders.
