Swiss Wood Pencil - HB
This product is currently sold out.
Looking for a new favorite? This pencil's barrel is made from dark beech wood from the Swiss Jura forest--it's beautifully detailed and just what any pencil snob would want from a pencil. You'll find that it's quite a bit heavier than a standard cedar pencil even considering that it's eraser-/ferrule-less making it quite comfortable to write with. The graphite is super silky and has amazing point retention.
PS. If your sniff the tip, you'll find it smells of brown sugar.
Made in Switzerland
Core: #2/HB, runs a bit soft
Measures 7" long
Hexagonal barrel, normal diameter*
*This pencil's diameter is every-so-slightly larger than the average pencil. It may not fit your single-hole sharpener. We recommend using one by Möbius + Ruppert or Dux.
We measure the characteristics of the pencils we sell against a General's Semi-Hex #2, which is the pencil we consider to be a good quality pencil of true HB/#2 hardness, similar to that of most American #2 pencils. The swatch in this product listing reflects that.
