CHUNG HWA 6181 2B Pencil

It is a very common pencil here in Singapore and i remember using them when i was below the age of ten. Then of course mechanical pencils became common, and i started using those instead.

You can find them in Popular book shops where they go for $2.85 for a double pack of a dozen (24 pencils).

What i like about them is the exterior paint work and design. The lead is good and dark, but it is soft and does not hold a point particularly well. The wood is some generic kind, with no smell but it sharpens well.

Overall a good pencil to use, without concerns for its preciousness, but yet good enough to like, and easily available so one can continue to use it.
