%u201CYou want the best pencil!%u201D Look no further than the General%u2019s semi-hex 2 2/4 pencil. After 3 yrs of wringing them out (I%u2019m on my second gross) they are the most consistent pencils I have ever used. Silky smooth, long wearing and a pleasure to write with. They are truly the Rolls Royce of pencils!
To Whom It May Concern;
I normally don%u2019t write reviews but this one is truly deserving. In this computer generated world %u201CI LOVE PENCILS!%u201D Several years ago down I was down to my last FaberCastell Velvet 3357; I went on a vision quest to find a replacement! After a few hundred dollars I found %u201CThe Pencil!%u201D Your General Semi-Hex 498 2 2/4. After a 3 year run I think it writes a touch darker than the Velvet and graphite holds up better! The cedar smells great, sharpens to a really fine point and holds up remarkably well in the classroom as well as in the kitchen. And it%u2019s made in the U.S.A.! I use about a gross of pencils a year to a year and a half. Thanks for such an awesome pencil!
This is the best darn pencil out there! I have spent over $150 on every type of wooden pencil out there. The General semi-hex 2 1/2 is the best! The lead doesn't break off as lots others do, and it doesn't wear down as quickly as a no. 2 but still delivers a good dark, crisp line. And it's made in the good ole U.S.A to boot. Thanks You!
