10B Mitsubishi Hi-Uni Soft Drawing Pencil


As used by many animators,manga and professional artists, notably Hayao Miyazaki (founder of Studio Ghibli and creator of amazing animated films such as My Neighbour Totoro or Princess Mononoke for example), the Mitsubishi Hi-uni is Mitsubishi's highest quality artist pencil, known for its brush like, smooth buttery soft and dark markings.

Made entirely in Japan since 1966: graphite from Kagoshima prefecture, the most southern part of Japan, mixed to clay from Tochigi prefecture (region neighbouring Tokyo), encased in the best wood from Hokkaido (the northern island of Japan) - this is Japanese pencil making in all its glory. 

Sold in singles or a box of 12

Also available as a set of 22 grades - a great gift for any artist and animator.
