thick graphite lead with black protective foil, sharpens like normal pencil, round barrel
The Pitt Monochrome Graphite Pure from Faber-Castell is a solid “pencil” without a wooden casing. It has instead a thin plastic protective foil wrapped around the graphite, a construction which makes it especially good for work on larger areas like, e.g. shading. Because the protective wood encasing is missing, it is highly advisable that you do not let this pencil fall to the ground!
