Talk Back Tuesday: Celebrating National Pencil Day


010610 068

Happy Belated National Pencil Day! Hymen Lipman is credited with registering the first patent for a pencil with an attached eraser on March 30, 1858 (U.S. Patent 19,783).

Did you do anything special to celebrate the day? I use pencils pretty much every day to both write and draw – mechanical drafting pencils for writing, and wood pencils in a variety of hardness (and colors) for drawing.

Rhodia pencils are one of our best selling products. The paint is our signature Rhodia orange over a sharp looking Linden black wood body and the triangular shape helps to keep them from rolling off the table. The lead grade is HB, the same as a #2 pencil. They can be purchased individually, or in boxes of 25 from select retailers.

One thought on “Talk Back Tuesday: Celebrating National Pencil Day

  1. The fact that they are triangular shaped to stop from them from traveling off the desk is smart. I personally find it annoying when I’m drawing and when setting down a pencil find myself bending down or searching for my pencils on the floor.
