The Wyrmwood Pencil: truly an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. Each and every pencil is hand-turned, resulting in a beautiful finish. A built-in sharpener allows you to easily keep it writing its best. Thoughtful contours complete the design, ensuring that it feels natural in the hand. Each Wyrmwood Pencil pledged for will include a complimentary high-polymer eraser.
Also known as Chechen, Black Poisonwood is a vibrant deep colored wood. Coming from the same family of plants as Poison Ivy (the family Anacardiaceae) the bark of the tree produces urushiol which is the same chemical skin irritant that Poison Ivy produces. Hence the name: Poisonwood. Don’t worry, the heartwood of the tree doesn’t contain any of the compound and is completely non-toxic.
