Castell 9000 – a genuinely classic pencil – was launched by Count Alexander von Faber-Castell in 1905. Its quality and finely graduated degrees of hardness have made it a firm favourite with artists and illustrators. Its lead is fully bonded with the wood surround and is therefore particularly break-resistant. The hexagonal wood casings come only from certified sustainable forests, and the water-based varnish is far more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquers.

    My everyday go-to pencil for about all my sketching & drawing requirements. Unwavering quality, and everything I have come to expect from the 9000 range of fine graphite pencils.
