I do most of my writing in pencils, especially in my datebook where I have to erase a lot.
I discovered General’s Pencils at the art supply show in Phoenix. Made in Jersey City, NJ, General’s Pencils offers writing and drawing pencils. I ordered two boxes of Semi-Hex to use at the office and home. Even though I am very attached to the #2 Ticonderoga that I have used since grade school, General’s is gradually replacing them. They are smooth to write with, and I like the grey of the line. They also have a good eraser!
But for the life of me, I cannot figure out why a five-generation New Jersey-based company would have a Conestoga wagon on the box! Perhaps it is a 19th c. romantic notion of the pioneering spirit?
Any other General’s fans out there? What kind(s) of pencils do you use to write or doodle?
