In world becoming ever more digital, especially when the surroundings become too complex, people will come back to the pencil. Pencils are like little magic wands that can bring our imagination to life and reality. They are simple, elegant, and timeless. I have never seen anyone needing instructions on their use. Small children know what these tools do before they even pick one up. For that one reason alone, I believe the pencil will live on forever and it shall never fade. And so that brings this blog. It is a testimony to the pencil and the pencil sharpeners that enable it.

    If I were to buy an older Ranger 55 from the internet (like a vintage one from eBay), would new cutters be compatible with it. Thanks, Griffin. Norman, OK

    I’m a dad. I’ve spent the last 15 minutes repeatedly sharpening a new-from-the-box Dixon pencil in an Xacto hand crank sharpener (multi-size, clone of the one I used as a kid) from the office store and finally threw it away as too short for my 7 year old to reasonably use. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who has noticed the decline in quality of both pencils and sharpeners from my grade-school era to now, when my kids are expected to use this stuff.

    I don’t know how a pencil can be made off-center, but I’m glad to know I’m not just doing it wrong.
