This particular pencil is especially remarkable: it’s an election pencil commissioned by the Danish government. It is as close to hand-made as a commercial pencil gets. You’ll notice there’s a hole drilled through the end, which is meant for tethering the pencil to a desk or polling booth. This version has a pigmented, smooth red core.
Viking pencil company was founded in Denmark in 1914 by a matchstick company, and was revived in 2010 by Creas. Though their pencils are no longer made in their home country, they are celebrated for their roots in Danish heritage.
These pencils come in a pack of 2.
