Brand: Johann Faber
Made in: Germany
Famous Siberian lead. This lead is known to be of the purest graphite ever mined. The actual lead is hexagon shaped which I've only seen with Siberian Graphite pencils.
Johann Faber was one of two brothers who spun off their own pencil brands from the Stein, Germany-based A.W. Faber Pencil Company in the second half of the 19th century. (The other, who opened the first American pencil factory, was Eberhard Faber.) Johann left the family business in 1876, however, his company merged with A.W. Faber during the global economic crisis of the late 1920s.
