Nobema Drafting Pencil #8000

The Nobema 8000s apparently came only within drafting sets along with the usual assortment of compasses and whatnot. I have the sets to which these pencils belong, but I don't show them because sets all look alike to me. Besides, by the time I was actively drafting those pretentious little cases with the obligatory velvet lining were all but extinct.
