Pencil Prompt: Everyday Carry

This is an interesting post and question.

At work, im often going from one building to another or one office to another. I’m always concerned about pencil breakage. I also don’t really have the time (or, frankly, the dedication) to fuss with a carry bag. Consequently, I usually end up bringing a mechanical pencil and a pen with my notebook. I would be interested to hear what solutions others have for this problem.

I always carry a small travel watercolor kit and 140 lb small postcard size block along with an Lamy fountain pen, drawing pencils and bullet sharpener. Oh, and a mechanical pencil, cool ballpoint and fast sketcher.

Lots of analog stuff in my computer bag.

Before I visited the pencil store 10 days ago I used ziplock bags. Now I’m using one of the soft black leather cases for pencils all capped with chrome caps. Nice improvement!
