Are you talking about a mechanical pencil, or something else?  Thanks.

I used to work at a design company... Lead holders are like mechanical
pencils, but simply hold lead (hence the name :)

I checked a few drafting supply companies in Manhattan, but only found
less expsnsive models.

One store would be Jason Office Products at 140 West 31st Street,
(800) 875-7455. According to their website,, they carry "fine pens" and writing
products from Lamy, among others. Lamy, in turn, has the Lamy Scribble
for $34. According to, "the Scribble is a
very nice sketching leadholder and the clip is removable." is also an excellent source for further
info about upscale lead holders, and its online store links (mainly to and might save you
going to a physical store altogether.
