Desenho 250 Pencil - B
This product is currently sold out.
'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.
Viarco is Portugal's one and only pencil factory. Founded in 1907, Viarco has done a beautiful job of preserving and sharing their Portuguese while also constantly innovating unique new things. They are very much a 21st century pencil company.
The B grade of this pencil is especially smooth and dark. It's perfect for those who prefer a slightly softer pencil.
Made in Portugal

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.
