Kerry was first introduced in 1971 and named ‘万年CIL’ (Kerry). The term ‘万年’ implies fountain pen, and that’s what Pentel had in mind. Around the same period, Pilot had come up with many pocket-sized fountain pens such as Vanishing Point and the Elite series. And just like the Elite series, Kerry features small body with a long cap. When the pencil is capped, the cap extends the small body to regular size, and the tip of the cap becomes the push button for the mechanical pencil. The body is thicker than a normal pencil especially the center of the body. Overall it is well-balanced with an unique retro look.
CDT's version is a clean and refreshing rendition of the standard Kerry. The pencil is finished with a white body, matte silver cap and CDT's signature braided pattern at the center.
