'Desenho' might be Portuguese for 'drawing' but we really like this pencil for general use just as much. It's Viarco's most classic pencil and has been varnished in the same deep shade of red for the past 70+ years.
These pencils run true-to scale and have a pleasant, tactile scratchiness to them. We love recommending the H grade for lefties, because it's virtually smudge-proof but still dark!
Viarco is Portugal's one and only pencil factory. Founded in 1907, Viarco has done a beautiful job of preserving and sharing their Portuguese heritage while also constantly innovating unique new things for both writing and art-making.
