About This Product
Mitsubishi 9800EW pairs the classic, high-quality graphite core from Mitsubishi 9800 with a body made from recycled wood. Minimally processed and finished, the 9800EW allows the natural beauty of its materials to shine through. The Mitsubishi name, model number, and product information are engraved in green, adding an understated accent to this well-designed pencil.
The graphite core in Mitsubishi 9800EW is smooth and dark, and like other Mitsubishi pencils, you'll notice it runs a bit softer than other pencils of the same class and grade. Nevertheless, it retains its point well (particularly in the HB grade) and doesn't need frequent sharpening. Recommended for general writing and drawing.
Twelve unsharpened pencils. Made in Japan.
