The popular proverb “the pen is mightier than the sword” was coined by novelist and playwright Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1839.
And we say a pencil is just as good for demonstrating how thinking and writing can have more influence than the use of force or violence.
Each of the two pencils in this set are unsharpened, rubber-topped and measure 17cm long.
As the pencils are made from wood – a natural material – there are natural variations in colour between individual pieces.
Pencils are sent by Royal Mail first class postage in the UK, and standard international shipping elsewhere.
