The Lyra Groove Graphite Pencil has a large, ergonomic, triangular shaped barrel. Their design makes them an excellent choice for children or those who are making their first foray into art. The barrel of the pencil measures 17.5cm in length, has a triangular cross section and no added synthetic substances.
There are small holes made along the side of the barrel to ensure comfort and an easy grip; teaching children the most effective way to hold their pencils! The grip is very intuitive; the thumb, index finger and middle finger fit into place around the pencil regardless of whether you are right or left handed. These guides can even be used after the pencil has been sharpened!
Each pencil also has a small area at the bottom of the barrel where a name can be written on.
