All penciles are 0.7mm and handmade by myself! They all also have an eraser under the metal cap. These are done individually and to no set template. Each is unique and even if I used the same woods, process and design, any subsequent ones would have differences. That being said, we offer customs as well, just contact me though the site to inquire . Here's the current pencil selection!

Don't worry if a number is missing, that is just a sold pencil.
1 - "Akagi" - Made of Hackberry, an otherwise unimpressive wood, this pencil was finished with lacquer I picked up on on a trip to Japan. Hence the vivid red colour. The process is by far the slowest as there's no way to make it cure faster. On top of all that it still gets a regular protective coating. Weight 0.7 ounces
3 - "Red Sky"- This ones a bit odd. The wood portion is Padauk, the top is acrylic. Originally a different design entirely, while trying out a new finishing technique, I more or less destroyed the original top half. Fortunately I had that piece of acrylic laying around, so finished it up instead. The end result is lovely, though the weigh is shifted into the top half. Not a problem just a differnt way of doing pencils from my normal. Weight 0.6 ounces
4 - "Squishy Orange" - This ended up a lot more yellow than I thought it'd be. Was making it for myself but thought it'd be better to share with others instead of just keeping it. (If I start keeping all the ones I'd like..then I'd have nothing to sell!) This is acrylic turned to my standard shape , great if you hold your pencils near the top. Weight 0.6 ounces.
5 - "Deco Carpet" - My first attempt at turning acrylic. While it's rather lovely too look at there are some definite flaws. Chips out of the resin, misalignment between the fittings and the acrylic. While I'm proud of it, it's also not without its flaws so priced accordingly. Functional, Pretty, but could be better. Weight 0.6 ounces
7 - "Christmas in July" - I first saw this wood over 10 years ago on a knife handle, still have that knife. When I found it in a size I could turn, had to get it. Layers of died wood, glued together. Another "pencil for myself" that I am going to use as a way to break my attachment to them. Still have 8 other pieces to make and shape. this one however, came together fast and nice. A pleasant overall time making it, and I love the final result. Has nothing to do with christmas, but it's July 25 (on the date of uploading) and it's green, maroon, and coffee........... Weight 0.7 ounces
