I bought the only example of this that I've ever seen.  This is a high quality, cap actuated clutch pencil stamped "Klagges-Essig Pepncil Corp. Brooklyn, NY" on the lower barrel. 

I did find a patent for a clutch pencil issued to a Henry C. Klagges on October 8, 1940.  View here.  That patent was assigned to Esterbrook.  That's my best guess at this point.
