Drumstick Pencils Are A Great Idea, Unless You Intend To Write With Them

By Andrew Liszewski

I think every grade school student has a little bit of Gene Krupa inside them, particularly when they get their hands on a pair of brand new pencils and start drumming on their desk, textbooks or whatever produces a unique sound. And that’s why I like these Drumstick Pencils designed by Moko Sellars. One end features the rounded tip like you’ll find on a real drumstick, while the other end can be sharpened like a standard HB pencil.

But like I discovered at a young age, even accidentally dropping your pencil on the floor can shatter the carbon inside, and if you’ve ever had to re-sharpen your pencil only to find the tip breaking off again and again, you’ll see the crucial flaw with this design. But for around $7.40 from SUCK UK, I think the novelty of these pencils outweighs those practicality concerns.

    These will be a huge hit until all those that bought them go to sharpen their new drumstick pencils…then the carbon falls out and they start again…and again. Yeah, I don't think so. ;)

    The insides of the pencils break so easily, if it falls?

    I never figured that out…

    Offcourse you could use a pen or a marker instead of a pencil…. Problem solved!
