Pencils for Lefties Sampler Set
This product is currently sold out.
Our all-time bestselling sampler set was assembled to debunk the myth that lefties shouldn’t use pencil. We believe that this is absolutely not true. In fact, a statistically high number of lefties have been members of our shop staff throughout the past five years. If you are left-handed and have lost hope that you’ll find a pencil that doesn’t leave the side of your hand grey, this set is for you.
First, let’s put some facts out there: it is the graphite in a pencil core that makes it smudgy. On the pencil grading scale, the softer a pencil is, the more graphite it contains. The harder a pencil is, the less graphite (and more clay) it contains. For lefties, it makes more sense to use a harder pencil, though many people don’t like harder pencils for writing because they can be scratchier and lighter than one might prefer. This set contains several pencils in harder grades, but keep in mind — the pencil grading scale is not universal. Not all hard pencils are the same.
This set includes one each of the following pencils:
- Caran d'Ache Edelweiss Pencil in F
- Tombow Mono 100 Pencil in
- Viarco Desenho Pencil in H
- Mitsubishi Hi-Uni Pencil in 2H
- Mitsubishi Mark Sheet Pencil
