The Six Mile Pencil

Wood pencils are a little like erasers and staples in that we’re more likely to eventually misplace them than actually actually use them down to a tiny stub. The Six Mile Pencil employs a bit of creativity to increase the likelihood that we’ll stick with the same one pencil until there’s nothing left to show for it but pages and pages of notes. Produced in England by one of the few remaining pencil manufacturers, these bright yellow pencils contain enough graphite to write text that tallies up to about 6 miles — or 10 kilometers — in length. And whether you prefer to imperial or metric, they’re available with markings set in either.
