Bruynzeel pencils

Bruynzeel is a Netherlands pencil and art supply brand, now owned by Sakura of Japan. A couple of years ago, we took a look at the Bruynzeel High Grade pencil. Today, we’ll look at three more pencils:

  • Bruynzeel Triple Grip
  • Bruynzeel design pencil 8615
  • Design by Bruynzeel-Sakura 8815
  • Bruynzeel pencils

    The Triple Grip is a triangular pencil, just slightly oversized. I like the shape and dark blue colouring quite a bit.

    The design pencil 8615 is hexagonal, and finished in grey, with a black cap and red cap ring.

    The design 8815 is round and has a natural finish, with black cap.

    The two design pencils are also marked “Holland”.

    The Bruynzeel name has a different font on each pencil. Maybe the name is considered distinct enough to not require consistent branding?

    The two design pencils write quite nicely (much better than the High Grade), while the Triple Grip unfortunately is just average. I would say the 8815 stands out as another rare example of a high quality round pencil.

    My thanks to blog reader Huib for sending me these pencils.
