Linker / pencil

Linker

Conventionally, when pencils have been consumed into pencil stubs, they become useless. However, with a wedge-shaped device, pencil stubs can be connected directly to any other unused pencils and become useful again. In the end, the only waste produced would be the small wedge-shaped device, minimizing the waste. At the same time, the cutting technic is kept simple.
With its elegant cross section, not only can the users hold it in a comfortable way, but the pencil stubs won’t come off from the longer one due to the upward force acting on the device and the friction with timber.
