Koh-i-Noor 1500 2B


The legendary 1500 pencil was introduced to the world at the 1889 Worlds Fair in Paris, quickly becoming one of the most famous pencils in the world.  At the time pencils were typically only painted to hide flaws, however the 1500 was deliberately painted yellow with the end dipped in gold. Today, the pencil is still made in a similar way to the original 1500.  The 1500 writes quite light and provides a fair amount of feedback when writing.

One of the oldest stationery companies in the world, Koh-i-Noor was established in the Czech Republic in 1790. The name Koh-i-Noor comes from the name of one of the world’s largest cut diamonds, which is part of the British crown jewels.

Made in Czech Republic.
