Faber Castell – Perfect Pencils

Most everything is digital these day but when I go to meetings I have my trusty Moleskin with me and when I travel I have another for personal use. I like writing stuff down, drawing and doodling on the Moleskin. But with the perfect not pad you have to have the perfect tool, and in this case it the Faber-Castell pencils, I have been using them for a while, regular pencils and mechanical pencils. My drawing skills are no better then that of a 3 year old but I still like to draw and sketch, its always a good way to display ideas and I’m always noting stuff down or trying to draw things.

I have picked up about six different pens and pencils over the last two years and I use them all, I have some which are clipped onto a specific note pad and some I use for doodling. And recently I bought a drawing pencil set, from 6H to 8B, and I don’t even know what that means except maybe the thickness of the lead of the pencils, its just normal black pencils which I use for drawing and shading and some of these are very thick so its going to be fun trying them out. I have found these pencils available in Magahwi in Salmiya and Kuwait City opposite Khaleejeya complex, and in Greece Airport, Singapore Airport, all over the UK. If your a person that enjoys their writing and drawing utensil then this is the perfect tool.

  1. the numbers on a pencil refer to their softness and thickness!
    which is great if ur use to doing pencil sketches etc – some give almost a charcoal stroke.. whereas others are really fine and hard!
    i’m impressed!
    is the grip on these pencils nice?

  2. I love moleskins too.

    I have one small one for photography notes and another medium-sized one for my garden notes. The latter has a lot of sketches and all (ALL) are done with a Faber-Castell pencil.

    My wife laughed when I showed her this post of yours :)
