Harry Potter Pencil Box.

This is the Harry Potter pencil box I mentioned, pictured here in response to community requests. (Apologies if they are dark it’s night-time in Charm City.)

The top tray/layer/tier:

Both compartments:

Top Tray:
Staedtler Mars Lumograph HB (2004-5 stock)
Ticonderoga Groove
General’s Test Scoring 580
PaperMate Earth Write “Premium”
General’s Layout (well-loved)
Palomino Prospector (current USA model)
Faber-Castell Castell 9000 4B
Staedtler Wopex (North American market version)
Halloween pencil from my family (Target 2011, pretty nice, actually)
General’s Draughting G314

Bottom Tray:
Chinese Dixon Ticonderoga
USA Gold “Natural” (2013 model with blue foil)
Field Notes pencil
Forest Choice pencil
Ticonderoga EnviroStik (no C)
General’s Kimberly B
Palomino Blackwing Pearl
Mitsubishi Hi-Uni HB
Faber-Castell Castell 9000 B
General’s Cedar Pointe (very old and well-loved)

I wish I could take a picture of what it smells like. My odor-removal efforts took away the stale smoke smell and even the smell of metal. So the cedar and eraser aroma-combination had quite a blank canvas to fill. It’s like opening a treasure box.

  1. Not bad–I like the tray divider! Though I could see how it could also be frustrating if you wanted to pop a block eraser or pencil sharpener in there on occasion. We have a lot of pencils in common, though I’m missing the Ticonderoga Groove, the Hi-Uni, and a few assorted others. No Halloween pencils in my box, alas.

    On the other hand, should I rub in one more time that I can buy General’s pencils of various sorts at Fred Meyer, where I get my groceries? Nah, that’d be mean.

      I WISH I could get General’s at the grocery store! :)

      It IS a doozy that I can’t fit anything else in there. I wind up Longpointing everything, even pencils I’d prefer something shorter on. I don’t know why I do that — this thing rarely leaves my house. Judging from our Common Pencils, I think you’d like the Groove. I found them on clearance at Office Depot last year, but Amazon’s got them now.
