Bavaria pencil.

This is pretty old pencil from 1920's, I think; it says "Bavaria" on the clip and takes 1.18 mm lead. I had to replace lead from my 1930's old stock, because original was crumbling. I really like happy color of this pencil and the way it sits in my hand. The man on the right is drawn with this pencil. I used Kuretake brush pens for sketch of the pencil. Ink almost eat thin paper. I was looking at Khadi sketchbooks today, very interesting paper, mostly sold in England, but they have 4 books in Manhattan, I should plan a trip to that store, combined with sketching, museum and getting this sketchbook.
