Faber-Castell seems to be the sole major manufacturer currently offering a wooden box of pencils. And what a box it is!
Their offering has a removable lid, and it houses a dozen fantastic pencils, the Graf von Faber-Castell pencil.
The outer packaging says “12 bleistifte” (12 pencils), which although truthful, is an incredible understatement.
My only grumble is with regard to the plastic insert that actually surrounds the pencils – it seems kind of cheap for the neighborhood, and will likely become dirty from contact with graphite over time. Otherwise, well done!
