Looking for a new favourite? This pencil’s barrel is made from dark beech wood from the Swiss Jura forest–it’s beautifully detailed and just what any pencil snob would want from a pencil. You’ll find that it’s quite a bit heavier than a standard cedar pencil even considering that it’s eraser-/ferrule-less making it quite comfortable to write with. The graphite is super silky and has amazing point retention.
The Caran d’Ache Swiss Wood Pencil is made of beautiful dark beech wood from the Swiss Jura Forest. Because of this unique material, these pencils have a little more weight than standard wooden pencils. The wood also provides it with a unique, earthy smell. Additionally, a clear matte finish helps show off the grain of the wood.
