I’m curious where these companies source their graphite (from what mine?) and if their top clutch pencil and/or mechanical pencil lead is the same as the lead found in their premium wood pencils.

Informative article! Question: how do we know when a Japanese pencil isn’t a Japanese pencil? I’ve heard that some are outsourced to places like Viet Nam for manufacture. Are most Japanese pencils made IN Japan?
