The Scent of Cypress Spreads Softly as You Sharpen the Pencil

Story

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.

Producers

Cypress|Iwakitakahashi/Fukushima

Started in 2010 as a disposable chopstick company that made effective use of wood from thinning, the company has produced a variety of products that take forest conservation into consideration, including cypress pencils, pillows made of cedar chips, and stuffed toys made of sawdust.
In 2019, they renovated and relocated to a school building that had been closed due to the earthquake with as little modification as possible. The school building, which still retains the atmosphere and memories of those days, has become a place of relaxation for citizens where the factory can be toured and people gather for events.

Handling Precautions

  • Due to the use of natural wood, there are individual differences in color and grain.
  • The surface is not painted so that you can enjoy the scent of cypress and the solid feel of the wood. If you are concerned about the roughness on the surface, please rub it lightly with fine sandpaper.
  • Dropping or strong impact may cause the lead to break.
  • The attached bag for enjoying the scent of cypress is made of paper. It may be torn depending on conditions of use.
  • There are individual differences in the strength of the scent of cypress. It also depends on the amount of shavings and the conditions of use.
