A Japanese standard for general writing, this yellow pencil ticks all of the boxes for successful everyday use. It has an especially soft and effective eraser and runs a bit soft. It's one of our favorite pencils to recommend for the pencil user who prefers something softer but is also looking to have an attached eraser.
These pencils come in three different grades, all of which are great for general writing. We recommend the H for lefties, the HB for general use, and the B for those looking for something a little smoother and darker.
Steeped in history and fiercely dedicated to innovation, Tombow is one of Japan’s leading writing instrument makers. They got their start in 1913 as a pencil manufacturer and adopted their current brand name, which means “dragonfly” in Japanese, in the 1920s. In addition to pencils, they’ve become recognized for their Mono erasers, which just might be the most recognizable plastic eraser in the world.
