The third in a series on Korean pencils.
The Dong-A Office Pencil with black matte finish is definitely sharp looking. What I can’t definitively confirm is how it compares to the Dong-A Hangdangmoo. At times the lead seems smoother, and at other times the same. It is certainly no worse. It may very well be an alternate finish of the same pencil.
The Hankook Sharp Office is marked “Korea”, unlike the regular Hankook Sharp.
It has distinctive blue stripes on white cap, a unique pencil finish. Unfortunately, it seems scratchier to me than its sibling.
Though I wouldn’t call these great pencils, it is good to see that Korean pencil users have some choices, and we’re not done with our series yet.
