About This Product
The Mitsubishi 9850 graphite writing pencil is stamped "For Office Use," but it's head and shoulders above anything you'd find in an American office. It sharpens to a fine and durable point and smells strongly of cedar.
The lines are much darker than a cheap #2 pencil, and the high-quality white rubber eraser removes lines easily. The burgundy lacquer and silver foil text make the 9850 a very attractive pencil, and the smooth surface feels good in your hand. Highly recommended.
One unsharpened pencil. Also sold in boxes of 12.
Made in Japan.
About Mitsubishi Pencil Co., Ltd.:
Founded in the 19th century in Tokyo, Mitsubishi Pencil has been one of the world's leading pen and pencil manufacturers for generations. Well-known around the world for their Uni brand of pens and pencils, Mitsubishi continues to innovate and release new products, like POSCA paint markers and an ever-expanding lineup of writing pens.
Fun fact: "Mitsubishi" means "three diamonds," and the name and three-diamond mark of Mitsubishi Pencil predates the better-known Mitsubishi Group by ten years. Despite sharing the same name and symbol, Mitsubishi Pencil is not related to any of the numerous other Mitsubishi companies in Japan.
