Eberhard Faber Cartograph 540

Den Landkartenstift Cartograph von Eberhard Faber gab es auch in kurzer Ausführung.

Eberhard Faber Cartograph 540

Die nur 91 × 50 mm kleine und 10 mm flache Blechdose ist mit jeweils zwei gelben, grü­nen und schwarzen Stiften ungewöhnlich befüllt1. Sie sind rund, 86 mm lang, 7,4 mm dick und haben eine 4,4 mm dicke Mine.

Die topografische Karte im Hintergrund ist das Messtischblatt 3173, Kleinsassen, her­ausgegeben vom Reichsamt für Landesaufnahme 1936.

Das war's auch schon für heute.

    Gunther, I have now read my way through your Landkartenstifte category. These pencils are very interesting! I wonder whether they stopped producing them after the end of WW2, or continued making them (for export? espionage?). Nowadays of course the equipment would be more sophisticated…

    I too find these pencil very interesting without being able to tell why. Maybe it is because I like special pencils as well as maps but I'm not sure. As far as I know they were produced mainly for military use but I think that they are only relabelled and repacked colour pencils which were al­ready available. If I remember correctly all my map pencils have chalky leads and because of this they don't keep the promise of being easily erasable (at least not on the maps I know). – Now­adays a map pencil would most likely house a navigation system ;-) Apropos: Did you know that during WWII Britain forces dropped pencils over German POW camps? These pencils contained maps which were printed on mulberry paper since no other paper was so thin and strong.

    Oh, that is interesting too, pencils as ammunition :) Do you know if the maps at that time were made out of ordinary paper, or something more special? I would assume they were at least coated or greased or something, to avoid damage by the elements - and if so would this have dictated the specific formula used in map pencils?

    I'm not sure about the maps back then but won't rule out the possibility that at least some of them were coated. However, I don't think that these chalky pencils would work properly on a very smooth surface. Besides being chalky the Cartograph is quite hard so I really wonder for which surfaces it was made …
