This French made leadholder is nearly identical to the Swiss made Caran d’Ache Fixpencil 2. The most significant difference is the longitudinal grooving of three of the six faces of the barrel on the 234. Unfortunately, the grooves are not visible in the scan, but they add something, giving the Baignol & Farjon an even more precise feel than the Caran d’Ache.
This Gramercy leadholder is very similar to the Baignol Farjon 234, although newer seeming.
