Caran d’Ache has released the second edition of their pencilmaking masterwork. This edition features pencils made from Guyana Palm, Blue Zebrano, American Cedar, and Lati Grey. (That last pencil is a repeat from the first series. Why the double Lati?)

The walnut, blue zebrano, and cedar pencils are the ones that catch my eye.

Get them while you can. Caran d’Ache says the series is tremendously successful.

  1. Wow! They look beautiful, especially in combination. – On that occasion: Yesterday a local retailer gave me a sample, namely a Caran d’Ache beech pencil (possibly treated with a dark stain) with a red lacquer cap and a white cross on top. I wouldn’t be surprise if there’s more!

  2. Wow, these are beautiful. You know I’m going to ask this, how do I get my hands on this second set?

    By the way, thank you so much for the search suggestion, totally found a set and placed a order. Can’t wait for them to come in!!

  3. We have limited stocks of Ed. 2 pencils on our retail stores if any need them. We got heaps of order and almost already sold out during holidays. One of the best holiday selling items.

  4. where can you buy those? i am stunned by the quality car an D’ache has. I’ve got several items and I’m very pleased with it. and this is a must have!

  5. I got the ed. 3. The leads seem softer with the earlier editions. Plus, The second edition pencils had a surface problem I think (not sleek enough), after the first edition that was a disappointment. But the third edition is closer to the first one in this respect but how about the leads? Anyone?

  6. I know they’re sold out but this is worth a shot. Anybody out there know where I can get additions 1 through 5. New or used. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,

  7. Karen, if you are open to used pencils, I’m sure there are a few of us with buyer’s regret. When I wrote the above in 2013, it was thought that these pencils were made of of exotic woods, rather than reconstituted pulp.
