continuously glued and fracture-resistant lead, green hexagonal barrel (watercolour paint)
The lead of the Faber Castell 9000 Jumbo pencil is about five millimeters in diameter and the barrel is ten millimeters thick. The voluminous graphite tip offers a wide variety of widths while the thick barrel of the pencil lies so nicely in the hand that fatigue is inhibited. A pencil sharpener with an eleven-millimeter opening is required for sharpening purposes (e.g. our BRASS PENCIL SHARPENER).
