General’s Vintage Softa 935


A vintage offering from General’s, the Softa is a mini jumbo round pencil with a buttery soft, thick core.  Initially designed for checking, marking, school, and newspaper work, this pencil writes smooth and is mini jumbo sized, so will not fit in regular sized pencil sharpeners.  This pencil is vintage General’s stock and is no longer in production.

The General Pencil Company has been in operation since 1889 and has remained family owned and operated across six generations.  Currently it is one of the last pencil factories in the USA, operating in New Jersey. You can see inside the General Pencil factory here.

Made in the USA.
