Slightly oversized No. 2 pencil (11/32") makes moving from printing to cursive writing a comfortable transition. The thick granite core delivers a broad, smooth stroke line to make sure you are clearly understood each and every time. The pencil also features Microban antimicrobial protection that lasts the lifetime of the product. Built-in antimicrobial protection continuously fights the growth of microbes, such as stain-causing, odor-causing bacteria. PMA certified nontoxic pencil does not have an eraser.
