My First Tri-Write Pencils


This large size (13/32”) No. 2 pencils in triangular shapes are easy for small hands to hold making them ideal for children in the early stages of their writing development. The naturally ergonomic shapes help teach correct pencil grip. Thick graphite core delivers a broad smooth line. Available with or without latex-free eraser. Premium wood harvested from responsibly managed sources provides smooth, even sharpening with minimal breakage. Teachers prefer Ticonderoga for its dependability and craftsmanship.
