Try-Rex Jumbo Pencil - #2
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.
The jumbo size and shape of this pencil make it comfortable to hold for children learning to write and also for those who have trouble gripping their pencil.
Made in the USA
Grade: a true #2/HB
Measures 7 5/8" long, 3/8" in diameter
Triangular barrel, jumbo 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.
