Iwaki City in Fukushima Prefecture is considered the northern limit of the hinoki (Japanese cypress) tree, and the area is famous for manufacturing chopsticks using timber from forest thinning, a necessary part of forest conservation and maintenance.

Iwaki-Takahashi, Inc established a factory in an abandoned elementary school and started making pencils with the forest thinning.

Pencils are adorned with a delicate parquet of flowers featuring the Cohana logo. Yosegi Koubou Ag, a certificated specialist of Hakone Yosegi-zaiku decorative parquetry, is able to craft these exquisite designs using nine pieces of wood in a two-millimeter by two-millimeter area.

These natural cypress pencils are a delight in both scent and sensation. Each time you sharpen one, the delicate fragrance of hinoki cypress wafts through the air. A small bag is included for the pencil shavings so that you can savor the fragrance for a while after sharpening.

The pencil lead is a soft 2B, perfect for drawing and design or simply for jotting down your thoughts. It comes with a cap made of genuine leather for effortless, convenient portability. Flower Parquet Pencils make an excellent gift for a loved one or a luxurious indulgence for the true creative.

  • The surface is not painted so that you can enjoy the scent of cypress. If you are concerned about the roughness of the wood, lightly rub it with fine sandpaper to make it smooth.
  • Do not drop or give a shock as the lead may break.
  • When using the attached bag for pencil shavings, do not put the lead part as it may cause dirt.
  • Please note that the strength of the aroma may vary depending on the individual product, the amount of shavings, and the conditions of use.
