Number 2 Set - Acme Pen
It all started with the number 2 pencil - so in cheerful recognition of the ubiquitous pencil, Adrian Olabuenaga of Acme Studio designed the Number 2 Set collectible pen and mechanical pencil.
The Number 2 Set includes a pen and mechanical pencil shaped like the iconic yellow number 2 pencil, a set of erasers, lead refills and a clever box that looks like the classic school black composition book.
It's the perfect gift for teachers, graduates, and everyone who cherishes a good writing instrument.
