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.
General Pencil Multipastel
When you grip a General MultiPastel Chalk Pencil, you’re
holding something that has an incredible background. These handsome implements
have been handcrafted since 1926, the kind of history that shows up on the
page. After all, that time was spent perfecting the pigments until only the
best, blendable, non-acidic, and oil-free one’s remained. And if that weren’t
enough, the classic look of the Incense Cedar wood and the vinyl eraser ties it
all together. These pencils are sure to stand the test of time because, hey,
they already have.
Trekell offers sets of 12, 24, and 36 differently colored
pencils. Each set comes with a sharpener.
