Tsu Ku Shi pencil

From Tsu Ku Shi, we have a very interesting pencil – oversize, round, using an interesting colour scheme, and with a slice missing!

The idea seems to be to create the best of both worlds – the round grip favoured by artists combined with roll-resistance. It is a two-sided pencil!

The “missing” slice’s edge has been painted white, with the rest of the pencil in a natural finish.

The diameter is 9mm and the length 160mm, with the lead graded 4B.

The pencil was designed by Drill Design in Tokyo, and I hope to encounter more of their creations in the future.

The great design builds up hope – and there is no disappointment – this a fantastic pencil that delivers deep, rich, smooth lines. Highly recommended.

  1. Nice find! Cool look and exotic sounding name. Going to have to travel to the Far East once more, Japan is certainly a treasure trove of unique finds for pencil aficionados.
