Description

Copying pencils were first introduced in the 1870s as a form of ‘ink’ pencil that couldn’t be erased. They had violet aniline dye in the core that would transfer when wetted and pressed against another piece of paper. They were most used during WWI as a way to write, sign and make copies of documents quickly and easily, as the only other permanent option at the time was a fountain pen, which was messy and difficult to carry around. Though the aniline dyes originally used have since been proven toxic, a small number of pencil companies still make contemporary versions. 

The core in this one is a classic copying pencil purple and non-toxic. 

Viarco is Portugal's one and only pencil factory. Founded in 1907, Viarco has done a beautiful job of preserving and sharing their Portuguese heritage while also constantly innovating unique new things. They are very much a 21st century pencil company.
