People often wonder — how is America’s pencil made? Well, we are here to provide all the knitty-gritty details behind the making of USA Gold pencils.
We start with high-quality, incense cedar wood harvested right here in the USA. Why cedar you ask? Cedar is widely recognized as the finest wood species available for manufacturing pencils. Its reddish-brown color, fine grain and low resin content allow us to manufacture pencils with a smooth surface that sharpen easily and evenly. You will find that most artist-quality colored and graphite pencils are made from Incense Cedar. Did we mention that the manufacturing magic happens at our factory right here in Lewisburg, Tennessee? Over the last 50+ years, we have earned the reputation of being the largest and finest pencil manufacturer in the USA and we are mighty proud of it!
Here is the breakdown of how our pencils our made. It’s really quite an interesting 10 step process:
1. Incense Cedar logs are cut into pencil blocks.
2. Pencil blocks are cut into pencil slats.
3. Pencil slats are treated with wax and stain.
4. A machine cuts grooves into the slats to accept the writing core.
5. The writing core – made from a mixture of graphite and clay – is placed into the grooves.
6. A second grooved slat is glued on to the first, making a 'slat sandwich'.
7. The slat sandwich is machined into the pencil shape.
8. Individual pencils are cut from the sandwich and are sanded down for smoothness.
9. Each pencil is painted. Then, a recess is cut to accept the ferrule (the metal ring that holds the eraser to the pencil).
10. A ferrule and eraser are crimped into place on each pencil.
That’s how America’s Favorite USA made #2 pencil is made!
This 12-pack of pre-sharpened USA Gold Natural pencils from the Write Dudes includes 12 premium #2 wooden pencils that are easy to sharpen and have latex-free erasers. These USA made pencils are high quality, with an unpainted, natural wood finish and are made out of genuine American cedar. They are excellent for work and school. (5213BA-48)

So I do a little research on what the best pencils are and not to my surprise I find a bunch of posts by school teachers saying they lose so much time because Dixon pencils along with so many other poorly made pencils force the kids to keep sharpening their pencils when the lead falls out frequently. Most of them had similar recommendations so I decided to purchase a few different brands to see which ones worked best for us. And so far we have been really happy with the quality of each of the following types that we tried.
-Write Dudes USA Gold Premium Cedar No. 2. (Great all around pencil)
-Write Dudes USA SIlver Wooden #2 (Great all around pencil)
-Staedtler Rally Graphite #2 (Top notch)
-General Pencil Company Cedar Pointe No. 2 Pencil (Very well priced and still great quality)
-Paper Mate 12 Count #2 Mirado Black Warrior Lead Pencils, Medium Soft (Great pencils, nice darker color)
I'd purchase any of the above again as long as they continue to make them the same way. I found a few other reviews by teachers who recommended others, but those few were in a much higher price range. Keeping it in a realistic price range the above 5 pencils are awesome. They write well and the lead does not break every two minutes. Perfect for keeping kids focused while doing their school work.
So I've been trying different brands in hopes of finding a decent pencil. I found that in these pencils. You can feel the difference. These are wood and that makes a huge difference. The lead is also a better quality. They sharpen easily and write better than anything else we've tried.
