As a semi-regular user of pencils, I stumbled across this New York Time article (on LinkedIn of all places) and found it fascinating to see how pencils are made today in America’s last pencil factory.
The place in question, The General Pencil Company, is a refreshing example of a company sticking to its roots. If you’re a scribbler, it’s well worth a read.
