A remarkable gift for the person in your life who has a way with words, this keepsake pencil includes extra leads, a removable clip, stylus nibs, extra erasers, and a scouring pad for polishing. Made in Austin, Texas.

Andrew Sanderson has always been obsessed with taking things apart to figure out how they work, so studying to become a mechanical designer was a natural choice. After using a mechanical pencil for sketching projects each day, Andrew had the idea to design one that didn't reveal how it was put together or the different parts it was made from. With this design, the user must investigate to find where the pencil breaks apart, the different pieces, and how they're held together. To Andrew, this challenge is just as intriguing as the pencil itself.
