CWPE Black Wood Pencil
This product is currently sold out.
This is a pencil we're really excited about, and even that's probably an understatement.
If you're familiar with Caran d'Ache's range of pencils you'll notice a few familiar characteristics. It's the same look as the Black Wood (totally black), writes like a Swiss Wood (dark but amazing point retention) and is the size of a Grafwood (a tiny bit bigger in diameter than average). Basically, if you added equal parts of all of our favorite Cd'A pencil this would be it.
And because you're going to need to know: it *should* fit in most single hole sharpeners (especially the M+R Bullet Sharpener) but a jumbo hole will work too. You'll notice that it's just a couple of millimeters larger than a normal diameter.
Made in Switzerland
Grade: #2/HB, runs about one grade soft
Measures 7" long
Hexagonal barrel, slightly larger diameter
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.
