PENCILS

Pencils and Leads

 The name is derived form the Old French “pincel” meaning a small paintbrush. Did you know that HB standard stands for Hard Black, and the values range from the very soft 9B to the very hard 9H? Many famous authors had their own favourite brands; for John Steinbeck it was Blackwing whereas Roald Dahl preferred Ticonderoga - he started each working day with 6 perfectly sharpened pencils.
