The hand axe as a pencil.
Not only gods, cyclopes or ordinary giants can operate this huge writing, hatching and drawing instrument, but humans can too. Due to its dimensions, you can hardly call this instrument a pencil. Like our comparatively delicate graphite lead, the graphite rod is ideal for frottages, where the surface structures have to be transferred to the paper as well as for rather monumental sketches and very clear labelling on wood or stone. Everybody who thinks that all this is too useful, should try the possibilities of this archaic looking drawing instrument himself. As the graphite rod will not fit into one of our pen trays or pouches and as the color has a strong tendency to rub off, it comes in a sac. This unique instrument is made by a company in Portugal, which was founded in 1907 as a pencil factory and for years has been committed to supporting local artists. This seems to have inspired the factory's own creativity. Understandably, they only produce this utensil in limited quantities.
