Pencils vary greatly between manufacturers, quality of graphite, wood and the quality of finish. Interested in trying out some pencils and don’t know where to start? Check out this page as a starting point for some tips and specially curated bundles of pencils. You can also check out our Top 10 pencils here.
At present we do not have a physical store location, however we are always on the lookout for opportunities in Melbourne. Keep an eye out for pop-up locations in the future.
We have tried to give as much information as possible to describe the pencils available and provided writing samples for most pencils. If you have any specific questions, please let us know.
Not all pencils are created equal. Check out this post for some great info about graphite grades. Different pencil manufacturers grade their pencils differently, so an HB from Mitsubishi will be different from a HB from Faber-Castell. Different pencil brands and different pencil ranges within a brand also have differences in the graphite used.
We stock the full range of 15 Caran d’Ache Grafwood pencils, along with all 22 grades of Mitsubishi Hi-Uni pencils and all 17 grades of Tombow Mono 100 – all premium-range artist pencils. We also stock the full range of 8 Faber-Castell Pitt Graphite Matt speciality pencils.
As a small business, we’ve had to make some difficult decisions about our product range. Some brands have up to 24 different grades of graphite in a single line of pencils, so we simply couldn’t stock all grades for all brands. With your support we will continue to grow our stock and offer a wider variety of pencils.
If you’re looking for something specific and can’t find it, please let us know. We have an extensive network of pencil suppliers and resources and can likely source any currently manufactured pencil you’re after. We might even be able to find something vintage or rare for you!
