Staedtler pacific pencil

Staedtler pacific pencil
This is the first pencil in this series that specifies a country of manufacture, and the only one with a name associating it with a specific region.

The Staedtler Australia website proudly mentions a number of made in Australia pencils, including the pacific.

This pencil has a red varnish, with gold stamping that reads:

AUSTRALIA Staedtler pacific HB

The obverse has a black barcode. The cap is unfinished.

The varnish is quite thin. This is more than just an aesthetic issue – a thick varnish protects pencils from dings and dirt, and creates a more uniform surface and hence a more consistent grip.

The pencil itself is useable, but the lead is scratchy, and as we’ll soon see, there are some much nicer pencil choices available down under.

  1. Well, it’s a little bit strange that you don’t know Staedtler yellow pencil (134).
    Maybe it’s only available in asia, like Staedtler Pacific in Austrailia.
    Here’s the link of that pencil.

    Your posts make me to be really excited, because I’ve been fascinated with pencils. I think I will visit here frequently. :D

  2. Kent, thank you for the photo and the link. The 134 is not available in Canada. I have a 132, but don’t know how it may differ from the 134. Welcome and thank you for your comments.
