Eraser pencil

Why buy a pencil and an eraser, or even a pencil with an eraser, when you could have the Eraser Pencil? The design, from Deuk Young Lee of Korea, ditches the wood entirely and replaces it with a long length of stiff rubber. Thus, as long as the pencil is long enough to write with, it still has an eraser.

Why Lee made it a cross shape is a little less obvious. It certainly limits the amount of available eraser, and also looks rather uncomfortable to hold, despite Lee’s assertion that it is in fact more comfortable. And what happens when the rubbery exterior bends? Will the lead inside shatter and snap into several shards? Almost certainly.

‘duk1106’, an ‘eraser pencil’ designed by korea-based deuk young lee,
replaces the wooden body of conventional pencils with a rubber eraser. produced inexpensively
via injection molding, the device is still sharpenable, but eliminates the extra material of wood
that normally adds no additional functionality to a pencil. lee states that the pencil is furthermore
more comfortable than traditional models: stable enough to be gripped easily but causing less fatigue
over extended periods of writing.

    I was actually moved enough to drop a thought 😉 I do
    have 2 questions for you if it’s okay. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of the comments come across
    as if they are left by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are
