Mitsubishi No. 772 Bicolour Pencil (Vermillion - Prussian Blue)

$2.00
Mitsubishi 772 pencil is a hexagonal bodied bicolour pencil with a 50:50 red:blue ratio and fairly rich colour pigmentation. Bicolour pencils remain of use and interest both to pencil collectors and those who do a lot of writing and editing, as well as being useful for journalling. Sold as unsharpened singles.

Bicolour pencils such as the Mitsubishi 772 pencil were once the mainstay of editors, journalists, lawyers and accountants. Less popular today thanks to the widespread adoption of digital editing, red-blue pencils are still a pretty useful and interesting item of stationery to own and keep on ones desk and have found new use in bullet journalling, and a younger generation who are discovering the blue-red pencil method. Lawyers may know that the 'Blue Pencil Test' (whereby the enforceable parts of a contract may be severed from the unenforceable parts and so remain valid) takes its name from the custom of using editing written copy with a blue pencil.

We have several bicolour pencils in stock at The Journal Shop. The Mitsubishi 772 is a pleasing hexagonal bodied bicolour pencil with a 5:5 split between red and blue. The pencil core has a fairly rich pigmentation and acceptable point retention. If you are likely to use more red than blue, see other bicolour pencils at TJS which offer an unequal split (such as the Tombow 8900-VP pencil).
