creating. We take pride in handcrafting quality pencils and artist materials
using traditional methods passed down for five generations. Our history dates
back to 1861 when Edward Weissenborn founded the American Lead Pencil

patents for improved machinery and processes in making 360 different kinds
of pencils. Weissenborn sold the company to The Reckford family in 1885.
He then established the pencil exchange in Jersey City, New Jersey with his
son Oscar, in 1889 .Which was later renamed The General Pencil Company.
