Graf von Faber-Castell Perfect Pencil Brown


It's not surprising the source for the Perfect Pencil is Faber-Castell, founded in 1761 and since the mid 1800s the major manufacturer of wood-cased pencils. Perfection begins with the fact that writing flow is never interrupted by searching for a sharpener because one is built into the removable platinum-over-silver protective cap. The cap also serves to extend the pencil as it's used so no more stubby scribing. With a replaceable eraser under the end cap, you have everything together in a compact and always-ready-to-use form. The pencil is in precious Californian cedar with fine fluted carving, difficult to achieve in a wood this firm. Presented in a cedar box, gorgeous in its natural simplicity and, of course, refill pencils are available. You'll need them as this gorgeous instrument will last a lifetime.
