    Are you really trying to follow in Paul’s footsteps, right down to the same make and type of pencil he uses? The ‘Red Stanley Marking Knife’ phenomenon again, but now with pencils?
    Someone asked “What type of watch does Paul wear when chiselling?”
    Another asked “What is the correct weight of Thorex hammer that Paul uses?”
    You’re missing the point.
    If Paul suggested Running Shoes for jogging, would you ask what size he wears? 😂

    Try out different types of pencil on your own, and make your own mind up. Buy a pack of mixed grades. Some pencils work better than others, depending on the wood. Some choose to use red ballpoint pen.

    Have you considered that Paul is using a deliberately thick, bold, soft line so it shows up well on camera. So we can see what he’s marking. You wouldn’t want to replicate that.
    Besides, it’s the knife-line you follow, not the pencil line. Pencil is only there as an interim visual aid.

    Hi Tom
    Thanks for that , I have looked at the site you suggested and many more .I have been using pencils that look very similar to the ones Paul is using from a local supermarket that has since stopped stocking them
    .
    I know I want 2HB pencils with erasers.There is a lot to choose from on the internet and the price varies quite a lot.
    As I will be buying them off the internet in most probable in a pack of 12 I was wanting to make sure I got the best ones I could.

    Thanks again for your reply
