The Tombow “8900” series came to market as an ultra-luxury pencil for photo retouching in 1945. Nowadays, it is widely used as a standard pencil and enjoys wide popularity. It features a high quality Japanese graphite core and Basswood casing with its green paint color and hexagonal design.
This pencil has been in production since the 1940s and is the oldest product sold by Tombow. The design of the yellow box and the olive green pencil body has remained almost the same since 1948. The logo mark of the realistically drawn dragonfly represents the history of more than 60 years.
PeppermintZakka Review: One of our favorite pencils from Tombow is finally available in store! We love using them for sketching (best to be used with Arto Campap sketch paper) and also for pencil calligraphy and lettering. Pair them up with MONO Plastic Eraser PE-01A and get ready to unleash your creativity from within.
