Faber-Castell's history in one pencil

Its quality and finely graduated degrees of hardness have made it a firm favourite with artists and illustrators. Its lead is fully bonded with the wood surround and is therefore particularly break-resistant. The CASTELL 9000 is available in 16 different degrees of hardness, making it the ideal pencil for all technical and artistic applications. This classicl pencil is also available to purchase as PERFECT PENCIL edition - with sharpener, extender and eraser attached.
