Since 1889, General Pencil Company has been owned and operated by the Weissenborn family, carrying on the dream of its founder, Edward Weissenborn, who started his first pencil factory in 1860. General creates quality, handcrafted pencils and other tools using traditional methods that have spanned six generations. While its history stretches back decades, General’s goal has remained the same: create consistent products in a sustainable manner for artists of all levels.


Charcoal Pencil 2B Medium

Constructed out of carbon and organic blacks, the Charcoal Pencil is a General classic for good reason. Easy to fade, shade, and, if you need to, correct, a charcoal pencil is unique both for its textural abilities and forgiving nature. This particular pencil is the “medium” degree on the material hardness scale and will give you a smoother, more even marking. The pencils are pre-sharpened and encased in handsome cedar.


Charcoal Pencil 4B Soft

Constructed out of carbon and organic blacks, the Charcoal Pencil is a General classic for good reason. Easy to fade, shade, and, if you need to, correct, a charcoal pencil is unique both for its textural abilities and forgiving nature. This particular pencil is the “soft” degree on the material hardness scale and will give you a darker marking that has more depth, capturing the texture of your surface. The pencils are pre-sharpened and encased in handsome cedar.


Charcoal Pencil 6B Extra Soft

Constructed out of carbon and organic blacks, the Charcoal Pencil is a General classic for good reason. Easy to fade, shade, and, if you need to, correct, a charcoal pencil is unique both for its textural abilities and forgiving nature.

The pencils are pre-sharpened and encased in handsome cedar.


Charcoal Pencil HB Hard

Constructed out of carbon and organic blacks, the Charcoal Pencil is a General classic for good reason. Easy to fade, shade, and, if you need to, correct, a charcoal pencil is unique both for its textural abilities and forgiving nature. This particular pencil is a “hard” on the material hardness scale and will give you a light, even marking. The pencils are pre-sharpened and encased in handsome cedar.


White Charcoal Pencil

Constructed out of carbon and organic whites, the Charcoal Pencil is a General classic for good reason.

Compressed Charcoal Sticks

When you need a smoother version of charcoal’s qualities, try General's Compressed Charcoal Sticks. Since the charcoal is compressed, it has a consistency that’s closer to graphite. However, the versatility of charcoal is still present in every stroke. These sticks come in both square and rectangular shapes. You also can get three degrees of “hardness:” 2B, 4B, and 6B.

If you want to add to tone to a surface quickly, you can’t beat General’s Powdered Charcoal. This is charcoal in its pure, powdered form, ready to add depth to your works whenever you need it. You can add a sculpting mixture for even more effects, but don’t forget to wear a dust mask.

Designed for removing charcoal, pastel, and graphite, this eraser has a give and feel that’s addictive.

It’s hard to say an eraser is imbued with power, courage, and wisdom, but have you held this one?


Factis Extra Soft Eraser
This extra soft eraser is latex-free, meaning its a great fixer of any “oops” on fine, watercolor, or vellum surfaces. And that’s its calling card: General’s Factis erasers are renowned for not messing up your papers. If that wasn’t enough, it’s even a good house guest, picking up its spent shavings.


Kneaded Eraser
General’s Kneaded Eraser got its name because you can knead it into any shape. That kind of adaptability makes it a favorite with artists who need an eraser that can do the right job at any time. Latex-, lanolin-, and PVC-free, this Kneaded Eraser is a natural at eliminating graphite, pencil, and charcoal.
