brand name pencils

a website dedicated entirely to brand name pencils. this is why i love the internet!

you will learn interesting bits of informaiton like this,

WWII-era pencils have very distinct cardboard or plastic ferrules . Metals were needed for the war effort so a hard cardboard or plastic replaced the nickel or brass previously used to house the eraser.
