  2. Fred; Yes. The photo and question shows you haven’t forgotten about your fans and will soon educate us as to the nuances and
    significances of these writing instruments.

    • THESE writing instruments, no. Forthcoming ones, yes.

        Hi Fred, great blog! Is it still active? I haven’t seen any postings this year. I’d like to send you a review copy of a new book titled “The Secret Life of the Pencil” by Alex Hammond and Mike Tinney. You may really like it. Sorry to contact you in this manner. Please ping me back with a mailing address. Thanks!

      • The blog has been “on hiatus” for some time, regrettably, but I check in on Comments from time to time. It will be back! Thank you and other followers for maintaining interest.

    2 of the 5 random pencils are left handed pencils.

    • I didn’t realize that. Nice observation. I am a left-handed person, and I collect pencils, I will find those left-handed pencils

  4. I see the theme, and really appreciate that the “Whoopee” pencil has a “Full Length” lead (for maximum whoopee, I assume). I wonder if there are appropriately named sharpeners, as well, for romantic pairings. (Although on second thought, a sharpener would kind of kill the mood.)

    • There are: KUM pencil sharpeners

    Yeah, I’m late to this one,…

    I have tried the 6B Cock but find the 9H to be more inline with the brand.
