I really like these. I intend to back them so my niece, who just started drawing and has a real talent, can have a really awesome present (if and) when rewards ship out!

Nice concept, but it has to be available for ordering easily for refills.

Who would have thought that we could still innovate on a pencil?! There are not the first, but I love these! And… you can save trees in the process! Fair price point and reasonable shipping fees to Canada.

Campaign Info


With the environment already facing a myriad of challenges today - from pollution to climate change - in order to avoid pencil-making from becoming another grievance for the nature, we created Nord, woodless pencils. 

A New Kind of Pencil 

Made without a wood barrel our pencils have a full graphite body offering 6 times more usable pigment than a standard pencil. Usable for both detailed sketching and flat shading, these pencils can be sharpened and shaped to suit your needs. This beautiful box set is full of artist quality graphite, making the perfect gift for the professional artist or serious enthusiast.

A premium artist quality pencil ideal for sketching, drawing, writing, arts, graphics, hatching, etc  …

We are not the first but we could not find any easily or at a fair price, so we did our own. 

Nord pencils can be used for both detailed sketching if sharp and flat shading if dulled, these pencils can be sharpened and shaped to suit your needs, as well as used tip down, side on or on the edge if necessary.

The graphite was mixed with pigments to create 24 colour pencils, allowing the artist to create different levels of darkness, textures, and perspectives, increasing the diverse uses of the medium.

The colour pencils layers smoothly & easily and they have a thin lacquer coating for easy, mess-free use.

The intensity range is well-controlled by altering how much pressure you apply, and it can lay down some intense hues when you want.  And for those times when you want a lighter result, simply let off some of the application pressure some.

A new approach to pencils that's eco-friendly.

The production of wooden pencils takes a toll on the world’s forests, with 8 million trees cut down each year to make traditional wooden pencils, as each tree yields about 170,000 pencils. The Nord woodless pencils are more effective and longer lasting meaning we are benefiting the environment and our planet.         

                                   Longer Life 

Wood-free and easy Sharpening

Our woodless pencils are excellent for precise artwork as well as broad, loose strokes, and shading work. They can be sharpened with a traditional pencil sharpener, and the shavings can be used for smudging in colour. They also need less sharpening than wood-based ones, so you can draw freely for longer.
