Brand: Eagle Pencil Co.
Made in: USA
Oooh, check out my Patented April, 24, 94 as in 1894. The other Diagraph 817 No.2 was made by Eagle Pencil Co. in New York well over 100 years ago, and aside from being a bonafide antique there are a few reasons why this pencil is special. When you pick one up the first thing you’ll notice is the texture. It feels grippy and won’t easily slip out of your hand. It also sports the long ferrule with a left-handed imprint; two qualities that often go hand-in-hand with pencils from the early 1900s.
June 3 update: Very sorry to disappoint, but the X/R pencil+sticker combo is sold out! Keep an eye out for a new X/R sticker soon (and see other pencils with stickers here).
The company was originally founded in New York City by the Berolzheimer family, and in 1969 became part of Berol Corporation. Berol was purchased by Empire in 1986, which was purchased by Sanford in 1995 (which is today a division of Newell Brands).
