About This Product

Like Mitsubishi's original Mark Sheet pencil, this handy three-pack of capped pencils is designed specifically for test-taking, but it actually has much more versatility than you'd expect. It's an HB (#2) hardness pencil that makes an unusually dark and shiny mark, for easy reading by optical machines like Scantron test scorer. Unlike other dark pencils, it retains its point for a long time, so you don't have to sharpen so often.

Just for fun, we tested Mark Sheet with a Scantron form and we can definitely recommend it for making unambiguous marks on tests. But we also noticed that this would make an outstanding writing or drawing pencil. The extra glossiness creates a bit of attractive variation in shading when using Mark Sheet to draw. And the combination of dark lines and good point retention makes it a perfect choice for long writing sessions.

This special package is meant for use in certain standardized tests where no writing is allowed on anything the student carries into the exam room. We like it for its unusual minimalism; there aren't too many high-quality pencils with such a clean look. The only branding on these all-white pencils is the Mitsubishi logo on the back cap.

Made in Japan.
