I love wood cased pencils. I much prefer them to mechanical pencils. There is something about how they feel in your hand and the act of sharpening them that is satisfying. I recently purchased a some bridge pencils from CW Pencil Enterprise online.
The bridge pencils, as you can see are smaller than your standard pencil. They measure 6.25" long when new. They sharpen well, hold a sharp tip for a nice period of time and they erase cleanly. I had no problem sharpening them with the array of sharpeners I own. The pencils are $1.60 each at CW Pencil. If you gravitate to the unusual or like tiny things try one out. They are fun to use! CW Pencil shipped them carefully in a cardboard box with padding so they arrived intact.
CW Pencil Enterprise has a LOT of pencils, sharpeners, erasers, notebooks and other writing accessories on their site as well. Their site is www.cwpencils.com. They have a blog as well that you can follow at http://cwpencils.com/blogs/news . Check them out.
