Bought this German USUS mechanical 4 colour  pencil. Its a twist action pencil and is in pretty good working condition. The balance of the pencil is nice and the build is sturdy. Apart from these very general reflections the internet is not throwing up sufficient information about USUS. Desperately want to know its lead diameter (1.1 mm?) and where can I buy colour leads? Also how to clean broken leads from the holders which are quite narrow.

Thanks in advance...IMG_1982.JPG IMG_1983.JPG IMG_1984.JPG IMG_1986.JPG IMG_1987.JPG IMG_1988.JPG IMG_1989.JPG

Nice pencil!


If it uses 1.1mm lead you may have luck with AutoPoint pencil lead. Comes in blue/red/black if memory serves me right.

This site sells the is quite a good resource for these type of pencils, and he sells leads too.


Never dealt with him before though... And I don't know if he's still active or not.


The Autopoint leads come in green as well.
