About This Product
This three-pack of Kitaboshi 9900 pencils features soft, dark 6B leads, so it's a great choice for expressive sketching or lettering. For a brief note, a soft pencil can be a great way to show your handwriting in its best light (just be prepared to sharpen again after a paragraph or so). And for drawing, we like these soft leads for quickly defining shapes and values.
Three pencils, one sharpened with simple plastic point protector. Made in Japan.
About Kitaboshi Pencil Co., Ltd.:
Manufacturing pencils in Tokyo since 1951, Kitaboshi is a fifth-generation company that celebrates the "charm and potential" of traditional wood-cased pencils.
Kitaboshi traces its roots to an early 20th century lumber processing company, which was the first supplier of domestically manufactured pencil slats. The family turned to manufacturing finished pencils during the midcentury boom in Japanese pencil production, and Kitaboshi Pencil has been making high-quality pencils ever since.
