Try-Rex Intermediate #2 Pencil
This product is currently sold out.
The Try-Rex was America's first triangular pencil. Its beveled triangular shape was patented by pencil-maker Richard Best in the early 20th century and to this day no other pencil is quite the same shape.
As for the size, a mini-jumbo is an unusual size between a normal diameter pencil and a jumbo pencil. You'll find it to be exceptionally easy to grip and is recommended for long-haul writing.
Made in the USA
Grade: a true #2/HB
Measures 7" long, 5/16" in 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.
