Castell 9000 Artist Pencils
The Castell 9000 is a genuinely classic pencil, launched by Count Alexander von Faber-Castell in 1905.
A firm favourite amongst artists and illustrators for 2 very good reasons.
One of which is the 2 different widths of pencil available; standard & jumbo.
The other being the wide range of grades, totalling at 16!
From a soft, delicate grey hue to a deep graphite black, making it ideal for all technical and artistic applications.
Uniquely, the lead is fully bonded with the wood surround and is therefore particularly break-resistant.

Faber-Castell are renowned for producing high-quality art products, with their ranges of pencils (Polychromos, Albrecht Dürer & Pitt Pastel) and Pitt Artist Pens (used by Manga artists the world over) being particularly well known.
