If you're looking for a real high quality pencil,

One of the most answer I can recommend is Faber-Castell Casetll 9000, which has been produced since 1905.

I believe readers of this article already knows Faber-Castell, and dark green, it's company color.

Faber-Castell brand's dark green color was contributed by this pencil.

 

Kent's PencilLog

 

 

Please be aware of that pencil in the picture is a used one.

Here's a picture of test writing, on a legal pad.

 

 

 

The lead is really smooth but strong, never crumble, never scratchy.

Maybe you know this is the first hexagonal pencil in the history. If you use this pencil, you will understand why I call Castell 9000 as typical model of pencil.

I used HB grade Castell 9000 but it's similar with other pencil's F grade (or some pencil's H Grade).

It's not as dark as other pencil's (especially, Japanese pencil's) HB grade, but it's dark enough when you don't compare with other pencils. If you are tired from sharpening office or school pencil, Castell 9000 HB will set you free. You can use this pencil for a long time without sharpening.

It's water-base varnish make me to feel safe. If you're looking for your children's pencil, this Castell 9000 is the best choice.

 

 

 

When I buy a new brand of pencil, I like to buy one dozen.

One of the most attractive point of wooden pencil is that it will extinct some day.

The most attractive point of buying one dozen of pencil is it makes me not to be afraid of the extinction of a good pencil.

Faber-Castell also produces eraser-attached model of Castell 9000.

 

 

 

The most important part of a eraser-attached pencil is the eraser.

I have some erasered pencils, whose eraser leaves its huge trace. Well, the reason why attach an eraser on a pencil is for convenience, not for making stain.

If you worry about Castell 9000's eraser, gaze following pictures of eraser test.

 

 

Sentence on the picture means, "FC 9000 Eraser-Attached Model, ERASER TEST"

 

 

 

The words "ERASER TEST" have been completely erased.

I felt that the eraser of Casetll 9000 has almost same quality with other high quality normal eraser.

 

 

 

If I get married and have children some day, I will buy dozens of erasered Castell 9000 for them. (This article was written Sep. 27th, 2007, and now I'm married. :D )

When I was a little boy, it was a bit hard to find erasered pencils in my country. Only some kids whose relatives are living foreign countries, and I was really jealous. Well, about 20 years has been passed, the GDP of Korea has grown up almost tenfold, but I still miss erasered pencils..

    Thank you for your comment.



    Faber-Castell produce 16 grades of hardness for this pencil. 8B~B, HB, F, H~6H.



    You're right. German-made Faber-Castell pencils are paler than the standards we know.



    In my opinion, if you want to get similar one with STAEDTLER Mars HB, you'd better to choose B or 2B of Castell 9000.



    I will take a picture of darkness comparison between STAEDTLER Mars and Castell 9000.



    Thanks. Come again. :D

    웹에 무언가를 올린 이상 어쩌면 펴가는 것이 싫다라고 하는게 더 이상한 일일지도 모르겠습니다. 알려주셔서 감사합니다. 출처를 달아주신다면 훨씬 더 고마운 일이겠습니만 그냥 즐겨주셔도 무방합니다.
