Goldfish Autocrat 5000 #2 1/2 Pencil
This product is currently sold out.
The Goldfish Autocrat comes from Shahsons, Pakistan’s first pencil factory, founded in 1952. Originally sandalwood scented, this has always been the company’s flagship pencil. Though they’re no longer fragranced, the Goldfish is so famous that asking for a “scented pencil” at any stationery store in Pakistan will still result in one of these brown and gold HBs. And the name? It’s proof that not all pencil mistakes are worth erasing: the pencil was supposed to be called “Goldfish Aristocrat,” but was mistakenly printed “Autocrat.” Either way, we think it rules.

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.
