Mars Lumograph Black drawing pencils feature a high proportion of carbon for matte, jet black results. They are perfect for dramatic sketches with intense rich blacks. They combine the advantages of graphite and charcoal pencils – but should not be mistaken for a charcoal pencil as the lead contains unburned carbon rather than charcoal. Featuring break-resistant leads made through special lead formulation, the pencils are housed in wood from certified, sustainably managed forests. Made in Germany.
