Though many of us might think denim is blue – apparently it is also “green”, when recycled for use as a pencil casing.
A very unusual offering, the SRX hails from Mega Brands, who own the RoseArt pencil facility. RoseArt isn’t mentioned in the packaging, and it isn’t clear if they were somehow involved in the pencil’s production.
The packaging states:
Made in China. Assembled in USA. Keep this information.
The pencil is a – dare I say it – denim blue – with silver ferrule and blue eraser. The lettering is silver.
The pencil is slightly bendable, and has a very grippable surface. I suspect the flexibility would make it quite durable over time. Like other extruded pencils, the shavings are voluminous yet neatly contained.
It writes somewhat faintly, yet smoothly. I can imagine this pencil being very popular.
My thanks to blog reader Joshua for sending me this pencil.
