Whatsapp Order


A Carpenter’s Pencil Hexagon refers to a pencil specifically designed for carpentry work, characterized by its hexagonal shape. Unlike traditional round pencils, the hexagonal shape of a Carpenter’s Pencil prevents it from rolling off surfaces and provides a more secure grip, making it practical for precision and control in carpentry tasks. The design also allows for easy identification and retrieval among other tools on a busy work site. Additionally, Carpenter’s Pencils often feature a flat or rectangular cross-section, further preventing them from rolling and making them convenient for marking lines with straight edges.
