Salty’s Carpenters pencil, unsharpened
Why the flat pencils?
Carpenters pencils are flat firstly to prevent them rolling away; imagine juggling spirit level, heavy wooden shelf, drill - last thing you need is your pencil rolling out of reach (if you dont already keep it behind your ear that is!) They are typically manually sharpened with a knife, although special sharpeners can be used. We’d encourage you to get your youngsters involved with a bit of manual pencil sharpening (supervised of course) - who doesn’t love whiling away time with a bit of whittling.
Our pencils are made and printed in the UK by Chambers Pencils of Nottingham
