This is a great little gift for any woodworker. These pencils are specially unpainted which means they’re less likely to mark the wall when you’re doing scribes. The standard pencils have no eraser on the end – again less likely to scratch the wall and you can sharpen both ends. Minimal print on the carpenter pencil body, no print at all on the standard pencils. High quality hard (H) lead in the carpenter pencils and standard (HB) lead in the normal pencils.
