MECHANICAL PENCIL Lead
First, lead is a naturally occurring compound that is contained in many different raw materials used in many industries to produce many consumer products. Exposure to high levels of lead through various means can have damaging health impacts.
HISTORY OF THE mechanical pencil
Conrad Gesner described a lead holder pencil in 1565, but the lead had to be manually adjusted to sharpen it.
The earliest extant example of a mechanical pencil was found aboard the wreckage of HMS Pandora, which sank in 1791.
Goods and bads

Mechanical Pencil facts
There is no risk of lead poisoning if you stab yourself with a pencil because it contains no lead just a mixture of clay and graphite. Still, pencil wounds carry a risk of infection for the stabee , lawsuits for stabbers.
Two British men, Sampson Mordan and John Isaac Hawkins, obtained the first patent for a mechanical pencil with refillable lead in 1822.
The modern mechanical pencil most resembles the models being developed in Japan and the United States beginning around 1915.
Some mechanical pencils are disposable; when the lead is gone, the rest of the pencil is thrown away.
In the United States the governing body on this issue is the Consumer Product Safety Commission or CPSC. Current CPSC lead content standards dictate that lead used in paints or lacquers used on consumer goods must not exceed 90 PPM.
As a result of increased concern for the safety of different consumer products such as toys or art products from China, we often receive inquiries regarding the potential for exposure to lead in pencils. The only relevant concern regarding potential sources of lead in pencils is in the lacquer or paint used to finish the pencil.
