Our 1816 Bugle Pencil is a round pencil with a clear lacquer coat, which helps show the wood’s beautiful grain. This pencil does not have an eraser and is favored in many school systems for its light weight and European styling. We suggest you use a beveled eraser to erase. The Bugle is very comfortable to hold and has an HB writing core. This classic pencil has a clean look and is lightweight.
