Koh-I-Noor Hardmuth Cesky Krumlov pencil

First, an apology. I only recently became fully aware that since a hosting change, the blog has lost full support for international languages. This is unfortunate, since a number of previous posts and comments that discussed the translation of pencil nomenclature (often Japanese to English) no longer make sense. If you might know the solution, or have a clue or hint, it would be appreciated.

The immediate problem is that it seems that the blog can’t 100% accurately render the name of the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the home of Koh-I-Noor Hardmuth.

Koh-I-Noor is a major and important pencil company that I regret has received insufficient coverage at pencil talk. In the blog’s defense, their products are often quite difficult to obtain in Canada. Koh-I-Noor is a rival of Bic/Conté in being able to trace their history back to the origins of modern pencil making. I don’t know what records or archives they have been able to maintain, but hope a professional historian will someday be able to recount their story.

These pencils came from the best online source for European pencils that I’m aware of, Bundoki.com. Bundoki staff visited a number of European manufacturers in 2010, and picked up several goodies they have kindly made available to the rest of us.

This particular pencil is a special “home edition” or some something along those lines. Hexagonal and oversized with an oversize lead, with natural finish, it is a very impressive pencil.

  • I really like the angle of the factory point on those pencils. General’s does something similar with their wide-cored drawing pencils (like the Layout and Draughting), and I have a hard time replicating it.

  • Matt Mangham

    Would you be able to sharpen them at all in most standard sharpeners? One of the pictures on the Bundoki website makes them look pretty enormous next to a standard Japanese pencil.

  • John, they do present well.

    Matt, the pencils are 10mm side to side and will not fit in standard sharpeners.

  • Matt Mangham

    I see you’ve discussed it in a number of earlier posts, but do you have a favored sharpener at the moment for oversized pencils?

  • John, try a T’GAAL adjustable sharpener; it has an adjustable angle that lets you obtain different points. My German coworker went nuts over it; he prefers the European pencil angle of his youth over the standard American.

  • Oversize pencils of course won’t work with the T’GAAL or many other sharpeners, whether handheld or desktop.

    Matt, I don’t really have a favourite. I try to use something new with a sharp blade.
