Faber Castell Apollo and Grip

I have recently spotted a new pencil in shops, the Faber Castell Apollo. An alternative to Faber Castell Grip I (which has a sort of triangular grip section opposed to the circular one available on Grip II)
Apollo is a circular body and a triangular grip. I found the Appolo available in 4 colors
(barely visible in the background on the left). Black, dark blue, purple and washed out pink.


  1. ...and the new Apollo seems to have no link to the old Apollo.

  2. To me it seems that Faber Castell is moving away from traditional mechanical pencil looks and embraces a more modern designs. Also a big proportion of the mechanical pencil lineup comes with soft grip
