Nitram charcoal is unlike any other brand on the market. Because of its unique manufacturing process, the product is not quite like compressed charcoal or traditional vine charcoal. Like vine charcoal, the wood maintains its original cellular structure, increasing durability and offering a classic feel. Like compressed charcoal, Nitram is darker than vine charcoal, more easily sharpened, and less prone to creating dust.
Nitram bâtons are round sticks of extra soft charcoal that won't crumble under the pressure of bold, expansive strokes. Three diameters are available: 6 mm, 8 mm, and 12 mm.
