A collection of Hardtmuths

The most common Hardmuth pencils are Koh-I-Noor and Mephisto - but they have made plenty of other pencils.  Here is a selection bought in Prague in 2010 including a Colonel which I haven't seen before, as well as left-handed Eros, and smart-looking aubargine coloured Dessin

As always there are even more Hardmuths on Bob Truby's site (but no Colonel)

Brevillier Urban


Another unusual brand, purchased in the Czech Republic but made (I suspect) in Austria. The Consul model is not listed in brand-name pencils, but you can see from the models Bob does have that the name fits in well with the collection's Roman theme.
