Brand: Blaisdell Pencil Co.
Made in: USA
Core is a thick, dark lead...imagine it is soft too! Just in a pack of these where the print is not as gold as the one pictured.....like it's faded and has a gold-black quality to it....still super clear print. Want one?
Founded in 1893, Blaisdell Pencil Co. was based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and had a short stint in England, too. Founder Frederick Blaisdell was granted a U.S. patent in 1895 for the shelf-sharpening paper-pencil. Until about 1946, Blaisdell was the sole manufacturer of a pencil with a string sharpening feature. The company became a subsidiary of Eagle Pencil Company around the 1930s, and eventually merged with Berol.
