|My Post about Triads|
Some of these pencils are 30 years old+. However, others are quite new. They do get used up! i seldom purchase sets, but rather individual pencils.
My personal preference seems to be a somewhat harder and thinner pencil than many seem to like.
If you're interestd in the zipper and band cases like mine, Tran and Global are two nice brands that i use. They're available at lots of places, and a search for elastic band pencil cases gives you more options as well. i think mine have come from Hobby Lobby and Artistic Designs Gallery, where i take art classes.
