A virtual mini-museum of the halcyon days of the Canadian pencil industry.
The Study 808 is a jumbo sized pencil created for early elementary students learning to write. I don't have very many Empire Pencil Company pencils made in Canada. I'm assuming that these pencils were made in the old Eagle factory in Drummodville, QC. Eagle became part of the Berol Corporation and later Berol was purchased by Empire in the mid-1980s. The two-pack of Study pencils seen below say Montreal, Quebec, Canada at the bottom.
Eagle Alpha 245
The Empire Study pencil is very similar to the Eagle Alpha pencil also made in Canada and probably at the same factory in Quebec. The Study might be a slightly larger outside diameter.
