Specialty Pencils

I don't often blog about the standard #2 pencil because they are boring and only serve as a reminder of hours spent filling out Bubbles for uncaring Scantron machines.  I like a normal pencil for a few things, but mostly I prefer pens.  People who know me know that I'm a sucker for a Dixon Ticonderoga.  Why?  I couldn't tell you, but of all the #2 pencils in the world it's my favorite.  I've previously blogged about Sharpie's Liquid Pencils several times and even once about a Pencil Sharpening Service, but never about the lowly #2 pencil and I don't plan to start now.  I found a couple odd takes on the usual pencil.

Here is a pair of pencils cleverly disguised as chopsticks in hopes of raising awareness for human rights violations in China.  Visit the site linked above for more details and to read the text included on the packaging.

This pencil is on sale on Etsy for only 3 dollars.  If you want to give a middle finger to digital artists because you do things old school then why not buy it.  I'm pretty sure the pencil you actually get won't be as nice or as interesting a conversation starter as the Dixon pencil made from recycled tires.  Why are we cussing at a computer program anyway?  Why don't we cuss at things everybody can agree to hate, like Cancer.
