The Grip 2001 is characterised by its unique ergonomic design. The pencil features a ‘soft-grip zone’ comprising of rows of raised black dots, made out of water-based resin, along the length of its metallic triangular shaft. This ensures a firmer, more comfortable grip and helps to prevent writing fatigue. The ‘soft-grip zone’ not only offers secure non-slip handling but also adds contemporary styling to the traditional pencil.
The Grip 2001 retains the same high quality standards of all Faber-Castell pencils. The leads, which are break-proof, are available in five different grades of hardness (H, HB, 2H, 2B and B) and the water-based paint has been dermatologically tested.
