Not sure what I was expecting with this nice old National’s “Fuse-Tex” Test Scoring 7000 pencil but I was pleasantly surprised nonetheless.
So many older pencils I find have varying degrees of scratchiness but the Test Scoring 7000 model is super smooth and writes quite dark.
Almost feels like a No. 1 pencil.
Aesthetically, I love the white text on black barrel.
And the font used for “Fuse-Tex” is pretty cool, as well.
Wish I had a whole box of these very vintage pencils!
