Caran d’Ache Grafcube.

Caran d’Ache’s Grafcube is a formidable chunk of graphite. You can letter with it, draw with it, or conceal it in your fist for added punching power.

(Pardon the dirty fingers.)

The graphite is dense. I did a test run to loosen my shoulder, because big letters call for big arm movements.

The Grafcube lets you rediscover calligraphy with your body. Wielding it feels like dancing.

Whoosh

Whoosh

I did this in two minutes.

Then I decided to ink all over it, using Noodler’s X Feather with a bamboo pen. More dancing.

Get a Grafcube and sheets of A3 paper, and just let loose. It’s a happy thing.

    Neat! Haven’t tried those cubes yet, but have always found Caran D’Ache graphite products to perform flawlessly Gotta keep them in mind for large scale speed-sketching
