Pencil + Screw & Nut / Office

Pencil + Screw & Nut
Pencil + Screw & Nut

As those who often use pencils know, despite having a short life, they are a tool which can assist in the creation of a great number of interesting things. However, what to do with the leftover pencil stub is a difficult problem. I hope that through using a similar connection method to that of the screw and nut, we can screw the leftover pencil stub that is too short to be held onto the head of a new pencil, allowing it to be used for the longest possible amount of time, while also saving waste.
