Preaching to the Converted

Pencils, pencils, and more pencils! Monocle’s latest video had me at the edge of my seat.

I’ve been going steady with a mechanical pencil for the past two years, but before that I was a pencil monogamist. I still remember the first time I touched the bumps of a Faber-Castell pencil. When I went to Germany in the summer of 2006 I knocked two things off my “life list”: attending the World Cup and visiting stationery stores in each city we visited. Switching over to a mechanical pencil meant I could prolong the life of the writing tools I bought nearly seven years ago. My German friends are currently crossing oceans and will hopefully sit on my desk by the end of the month.
