Origin of MiradoEdit
Mikado, which had been long seen on the pencils that were famous in America, were given that name since the word "Mikado" was infact a Japanese word for Emperor. When the Japenese bombed Pearl Harbour in 1941, Eagle chose to rename the famed pencil to the Americanized version of the word, Mirado.
Pencils in the GroupEdit
Mirado pencils are still seen today in the Mirado Classic, Mirado Black Warrior, and Mirado Woodtone, all made by Papermate.
