Yard-O-Led Pencil Lead in HB to refill Yard o'Led's mechanical pencils. See "Additional Information" for a complete list of compatible pencils.

Yard-O-Led are Britain's leading producers of solid silver writing instruments. From their factory in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter they produce a range of exquisite, hand crafted pens and pencils.

Yard-O-Led was founded in London, England in 1934 by a Mr Brenner to produce his patented propelling pencils which contained twelve three inch leads (that is to say, 36 inches or a yard of lead). After the Second World War the company merged with Sampson Mordan Ltd whose founder had patented the first mechanical pencil in 1822. They built a new factory in Birmingham and took over Edward Baker Ltd, another pencil maker.

The owners of the company since 2015, Imperial Yard, are determined to put the brand at the top of the British luxury pencil market again and, equally important, to maintain the heritage of British craftsmanship handed down to them.

The pencil in the 'group' photograph with these leads is the Yard-o-Led "Shropshire" silver mechanical pencil.
