Mitsubishi Japanese Pencils


Founded in 1887, the Mitsubishi Pencil Company has long been creating pencils for general use. In the first half of the 20th century, Japanese pencils were labeled with their intended use due to regulations set to monitor the prices pencils were being sold for. Pencils designated for certain uses were meant to have certain characteristics to reflect their price. Although this pricing structure no longer exists, many pencil companies, still include designations in their pencil designs such as the words 'general writing’.
