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.
Twelve unsharpened pencils per box. 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.
