The original Yard-O-Led Diplomat propelling pencil, a classic writing instrument. This ever popular design remains unchanged since 1934.
Thoughtfully designed, its angular hexagonal shape helps to stabilise the pencil on a gently sloping surface such as a draughtsmans’s table. The Pencil itself holds a Yard of Lead- 3ft of lead- giving the name.
Yard-O-Led holds the 1822 Sampson Mordon patent and is the oldest writing instrument company in Great Britain, hand making sterling silver pens and pencils in Birmingham’s jewellery quarter. Yard-O-Led has
built its brand on exceptional skill and precise detail, shaped by an understanding of the importance of
time honoured methods of both craftsmanship and design.
Every Yard-O-Led pen and pencil is individually handcrafted using traditional 19th century techniques. All Yard-O-Led writing instruments are individually numbered and sold with a lifetime guarantee.
