Hello. You've found a tiny niche in the universe where graphite wins over pens, pages, typewriters, computers, smartphones and just about anything else. I am Caroline Weaver and I have made this. With this website, I propose that you consider digging the sharpener out of the bottom of your stationery drawer and put the perfect sharp point of a new pencil to paper. You don't have to get carried away just yet, but you probably will. The smell of the wood, the sound of the lead as it scrawls, the tiny imprinted letters on the barrel--you will fall in love and you'll probably be surprised or excited but that's the intention.
My first love was the black Ticonderoga--when they still came unsharpened and had a matte finish (RIP). Since that affair many many years ago, I've grown to love every pencil for its writing qualities, aesthetic appeal and story. My mission here is to teach you everything I know and everything I learn in the process. This is just the start but you can expect more to come.
