The Hornbeam timber yields a silky smooth charcoal that imparts beautiful flow and soft edges to your line and masses. The dark’s are more a dark grey than the black of compressed charcoal however beautiful lost edges can be created with ease. The tone appears warmer than most charcoals. Our tests were performed on Canson C.A.Grain 220gsm.

Each stick measures approximately 5mm in width 160mm in length and is surprisingly straight for a natural product. They are sold as a packet of 3 sticks.
