Brand: J.S. Staedtler
Made in: USA
Same pencil, unsharpened and factory sharpened. Sometimes you will find a few factory sharpened pencils within a pack. I imagine they did this for connivance. I've become particularly found of these pencils over the years.
Long before J.S. Staedtler founded his pencil making factory within Nuremberg’s old city walls back in 1835, the STAEDTLER family had been hand-making this well-loved writing instrument for generations already. In fact, the roots can be traced back to 1662, the year in which first references to Friedrich Staedtler as a pencil-making craftsman were made in the city annals.
