pencil talk is a blog devoted to exploring woodcase pencils and related topics. Of course, it is also more than just that – it is a meditation on the basic tools used by writers, artists, students, and office workers, and how these tools influence us.

Suggestions for topics, proposals for guest articles, and correspondence are always welcome.

I am neither a manufacturer nor marketer of pencils, and have no affiliation with the pencil industry. There are no advertisements at this site.

Update: This page is one of the blog’s top destinations. The blog is almost twelve years old and this page need updating! Stay tuned. :)
