I made a Sketch Pencil for my wife just before Christmas and a guy called up and wanted 3 of them for gifts. Needless to say, I sold her Pencil – so here is a replacement. I’ve also taken a picture of the lead outside of the Pencil so that you can get an idea of the size of the lead. These are fantastic shop pencils.

That looks great and also looks like it would definitely hold up to any shops use!

Very nice. They do make a nice rough out pencil. I like their stoutness. I made one with Screwbean Mesquite a couple o years ago.

Nice work. I should try one some day. Getting tired of sharpening pencils all the time.

I have got to order some of these kits so I can have two or three in my shop. Nice work Bill. It looks like your pens are selling rather quickly these days; that is a good thing right?
