Faber-Castell Goldfaber 1221 Pencil

Faber-Castell has been creating high quality writing instruments since 1660. Originating from Nuremberg Germany, they continue to be one of the best recognized writing instrument makers in the world.

The Goldfaber lead undergoes a special "SV" bonding process to protect from breakage, and is available in a number of other grades.

3 of 5 More a B than a 2B March 1, 2019
Reviewer: Richard H. from MontrĂ©al  
Review of the 2B grade:
Even if there is no norm for pencil grading (Wiki told me) I have always relied on grading in my choice of pencils. It has always been something I could count on, after all we are talking about professional tool used by artists and engineers and manufactured by reputed makers. Now I have this Faber Castell Goldfaber 2B that doesn't show any difference with a Staedtler B that I have on hand or any other Bs that I used in my life. It is not a bid deal but still surprising.  In the same order I received two Mitsu-Bishi 9000 2B, and I can say based on my experience that they are real 2Bs.
Also of note, the two Goldfaber I received are different from the one pictured above: it has the "SV" mark on the underside but not the mention "1221", only the "Goldfaber" mark.
