2019 Anarchist’s Gift Guide, Day 2: Two Cherries Carpenter’s Pencils


I wrote about these in August. They are still awesome and I still use them every chance I get.

Why am I writing this, then? To tell you not to bother ordering them from the Two Cherries website. I ordered some, they charged my card but the pencils never arrived – Pencilgate. So if you want them, I recommend Tools for Working Wood. They won’t let you down (and the pencils are the same price when purchased direct from Two Cherries).

Fantastic pencils. Great lead. Great wood. Perfect balance and feel in the hand.

    Oh my, 4.5 Dollars for a single carpenters pencil? I never heard of a carpenter bying pencil or folding meter… they fly arround whenever you buy wood or blades or tools or roofing… concrete… ironware… no? Maybe walk the Ikea – have a nap and a coffee and… a pencil? Cheers!

    Ever tried General’s “Flat Sketching Pencils?” Softer cedar than the usual carpenters pencil, rounded rectangular shape, come in 2B, 4B. and maybe more grades, easy sharpening, comfortable to use, $2.98 for a pair at my local art supply.
