Matt — you’re right. I just doubled checked and their pencils are noted as being made from FSC-certified Pulay wood. Thanks for catching that.

Thank you for this detailed comparison.
Just one question, are you sure the Calepino pencils are made with cedar wood? Loks more like Jelutong, and it seems to be confirmed by the factory’s catalog, but we never know!
Also the Bic (formerly Conté) iconic pencils doesn’t seem to still be made in France. Maybe the extruded “Evolution” is still made there, but it’s not really a good pencil.
