Caran d’Ache Grafwood 8B


The Grafwood is Caran d’Ache’s premium drawing pencil range, available in 15 different grades of graphite from 9B to 4H.  It’s possibly one of the most beautifully designed pencils on the market, with each pencil’s paint coloured to represent the grade of graphite.  The Grafwood is slightly thicker than normal pencils, and has a thicker core.  This pencil is great for writing as much as it is for drawing.

Note: Due to this pencils slightly larger diameter, it will not fit in some regular sharpeners.  It will not fit in the Kum Single Hole Longpoint, however it will fit in the Kum Glass Bottle Sharpener.

Established in Geneva in 1915, Caran d’Ache is a privately owned family company, making pencils to the high Swiss standard. Considered somewhat of a luxury brand, they are known for creating the first water-soluble pencils and inventing the clutch pencil.

Made in Switzerland.
