Vintage Dixon Ticonderoga Shrine

Most of what you see here is vintage Dixon Ticonderoga. The large box is a complete unused half gross box. I have the original cello wrapper as well.

This is my collection of more recent Dixon Ticonderoga pencils from the 80s and 90s made in USA. Also in this shot are the Mephisto pencils I reviewed previously.

I'd really like to see more companies bring high-quality pencil making back to the US the way that Cal Cedar has.

Note: a few of these boxes I will not tap into, I use most of these pencils.

  1. Pencil lovers should be supporting General Pencil the last fully U.S. manufacturers of quality pencils!
    The Kimberly line is very good and my favorite is the Cedar Pointe...I have stocked up on them in case they go away.

    I know that Musgrave also makes pencils, but I don't like the quality and they have gone the razzle dazzle route of foil school pencils (the majority of their production) as the way to survive. Sad indeed!
