This is the final pencil in this August series on the pencils of Australia and New Zealand. Thanks again to Dave for sending me these pencils.
The Faber-Castell 1111 is an uncapped hexagonal pencil in matte black, simply marked:
SV 1111 21/2=HB Faber-Castell
It definitely looks nice in all black with minimal markings.
As a pencil, it’s like others in this series – not bad, but not exceptional. The lead is slightly scratchy, but on the plus side seems to hold a point unusually well. After a page of writing, it seems just as sharp.
