The Amazing La-Stil Pencil is round, yet doesn’t (easily) roll!  Novel, useful, and great for clever advertising slogans.  Only $0.0435 each, in bulk —

You can make a real LEAD pencil out of it! —

    When did these pencils first come out and are they still made today?

    • These look to be from the 50’s or early 60’s. With “Patent Applied For,” the technology would be of similar age. I very much doubt that they have been made recently. They contain real lead, after all, which could theoretically cause poisoning of pencil chewers.
