Valgblyant Jumbo Election Pencil
This product is currently sold out.
Viking pencil company was founded in Denmark in 1914 by a matchstick company and for decades has been known to make exceptional pencils, which have always been hard to find outside of Scandinavia. This particular one is especially remarkable: it’s an election pencil commissioned by the Danish authorities. It is as close to hand-made as a commercial pencil gets and has a thick, soft, dark core. You’ll notice there’s a hole drilled into the end, which is meant for tethering the pencil to a desk or polling booth.

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.
