Goddess #2 Pencil
This product is currently sold out.
This pencil is a nostalgic but currently manufactured version of the classic American yellow #2. Family-owned General Pencil Company has been making pencils in Jersey City, NJ since 1889 and is one of only three pencil companies still left in the United States. All of their pencils are made of high quality California incense cedar and are made to as high a standard as they were 100 years ago.
The Goddess is a rare version of a still-made round pencil. Though difficult to find (especially with an attached eraser), round pencils are often a bit more comfortable to hold than their hexagonal counterparts.
Made in the USA
Grade: a true #2/HB
Measures 7 1/2" long
Hexagonal barrel, normal 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.
