About this deal

Read more about the condition New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging is applicable). Samir: I believe they have another pencil that’s one step above the Apsara Platinum which I have never tried.

In 2013, a law student in Bengaluru filed a consumer complaint against the company over its coloured pencils, claiming that the "skin" colour was lighter than his own skin colour, and that the company's preference for the lighter "skin" colour promoted "racist ideas" (or colourism). This was maybe 3 or 4 hours maximum, which is fairly low for a pencil drawing of this kind of rendering. I wanted to ask you since you mentioned studying design and art in school, do you remember which pencils you’ll were advised to start out with? The mechanical coordination this must’ve taken in a factory pumping out millions of pencils is kind of mind blowing.

Samir: I think that that when we’re working on things in an A4 size, the wedge sharpening of a pencil with a blade or craft knife really doesn’t have too much of benefit. But again these were, as we keep saying, a lot of these come down to personal preferences and conveniences.

The clip, push-button and grip zone are made from metal to ensure durability, because these are the parts of the lead-holder. Samir: The Apsara Platinum Extra Dark, Apsara is a trademark of the Hindustan Pencil Company, which we have mentioned before when we did a episode on the Nataraj Plasto eraser. So tell us about your experience with this pencil or tell us about the cheap and good pencil that’s there in your part of the world. That’s the other thing, I know that artists go on about whittling things down to this perfect point, so these extra long points, so that we can draw things.But the best part was their graciousness to address a quality issue and they replaced the entire consignment voluntarily, without even a word. This doesn’t look like it’s done with a pencil but it has and it’s been done with these very same pencils. We spent an entire year or more doing everything, layouts, typography, lettering with traditional media on paper and on board. The sandpaper can be torn off when the sheet is filled with pencil dust, easy and convenient to use. The Apsara Platinum pencil has its selling point in its name, it is an an Extra Dark writing pencil.
