CASTELL 9000 - a genuinely classic pencil - was launched by Count Alexander von Faber-Castell in 1905. Its quality and finely graduated degrees of hardness have made it a firm favorite with artists and illustrators. Its lead is fully bonded with the wood surround and is therefore particularly break-resistant. Protective cap to protect against tip breakage and as an extender. Cap has an integrated sharpener, ideal for graphite pencils. Sturdy metal clip. Graphite pencil with B degree of hardness: ideal for writing. High-quality smudge-free eraser. In gift packaging.
