Jan, I will ask around here in western Canada and see if I can find anything for you. Or, at least some info.
Jan, I checked mine and they are Venus # 2 ..... Hopefully I will get some shopping time at Dollarama , Staples
and others. Will gladly buy any then email you before I mail them. Live north east of Toronto --more center of country so with all the others that wrote I think we should have the whole 5000 miles covered. I know we have
members in Newfoundland and Vancouver Island yet to jump in here.
I found this company - Lovett International Inc 144 Gould Street # 205 Needham Heights, MA 02494-2343
Phone: (781) 444-1600 Nicole Ma, primary of sales, updated this company profile on 09/17/2012 " is a large importer of school supplies, paper products and writing implements."
This may be the company that makes your pencil. Hope it helps. meanwhile I'll keep a look out for Lovett #2 pencils.
Gosh, thank you for that info about the Needham Heights, MA #. I may try it tomorrow.
But it concerns me a bit with the last name and "importer".....only because I was badly burned ($130 worth) about 5 years ago over a special lamp I ordered and had to return, similar info on the company, lost the refund over it. I've been really careful ordering on line/by phone since.
I really appreciate all those that are looking for these for me. I am very aware of and have tried all the other brands of pencils that have been mentioned and they are not quite what I want.

Lovett is a brand name and is manufactured in Canada and USA. Try searching on the brand name to find local sources of this pencil.
I just searched on "Lovett pencils" and came up with this link http://www.lovettpromotion.com/onlinestore.html
They sell all kinds of school/office supplies and list tons of pencils (with pictures) to give it a try.
