Chinagraph/Grease Pencils

We have spent ages trialling lots of different chinagraph pencils and have finally found the best – Staedtler Lumocolour Glasochrom permanent pencil.  We both use them for route planning and for out on the hill.

  • Wood cased pencil – won’t go soggy
  • Permanent and waterproof writing
  • Writes well on laminated and wet laminated maps!
  • Can be knife sharpened in the field
  • Smudge resistant

Pencils verses Pens

We made the simple distinction of using the pens indoors for planning and the pencils when navigating, with the exception of one pen always on a rucksack strap (See Lumocolor Pen Expert Tips)

Expert Tips

  • These are permanent pencils and have good resistance against rubbing off in the field or being washed off by inclement weather. Use a pre-injection medi-swab to clean your annotations of your map at the end of the day!
  • Cut the pencils in half to make them easy to store

Price - £1.95 each. Choice of colours – Black, Blue and Red.
