About This Product
A Japanese classic since 1946, the Mitsubishi 9800 HB is an unusually nice writing pencil, perfect for school or the office. It glides smoothly along the page, leaving behind dark lines and retaining its point well. The green lacquer finish is smooth and pleasant to hold, and the gold foil stamp makes this humble object a little more eye-catching.
Made in Japan.
