Pencils

 

Koh-I-Noor graphite pencilsGraphite pencil KOH-I-NOOR marked 1500 is the most popular pencil in the world. It appeared in 1888 and straight away came on the market in 17 gradations. Very soon the number of gradations increased to 21. This number of gradations is still retained today.

World standard of marking gradations with the help of numbers and letters HB or F originated at KOH-I-NOOR HARDTMUTH company at České Budějovice. For the first time this marking appeared on pencils with designation 1500. "H" stands for Hardtmuth, "B" – for Budějovice and the special medium gradation "F" stands for Franz Hardtmuth who invented modern technology, which permits to produce graphite pencils in gradation.

Water soluble KOH-I-NOOR pencils are the best in the world. Their advantage lies in the traditional technology of production, which is not usually used in other companies due to the complexity of this know-how.
