Cretacolor’s monolith pencils are woodless and made from the purest Austrian graphite, formed into a 7-mm solid stick with a protective lacquer coating to minimize mess. Pencils come pre-sharpened. Each pencil transitions from the point to the edge in a single stroke to smoothly vary the thickness of a line. Hardness grades range from HB (medium) to 9B (extra soft).

Use & Care

Sharpen as you would a regular pencil.

Ideal for writing or sketching. The softer pencils can achieve darker shades, while the harder pencils yield lighter ones.

Production & Design

Austrian architect, inventor, and entrepreneur Joseph Hardtmuth founded a pencil factory in Vienna in 1792, producing the first pencils with modern burnt-graphite lead. After World War II, his company Koh-i-Noor Hardtmuth became a part of Cretacolor, and a few decades later, the factory relocated to Hirm, Austria. In the 1990s, the company fell on hard times but was then revitalized by Hans Wolfgang Hromatka. Cretacolor continues to make pencils and other fine-artists' materials today.
