When using pencils , there are often many short pencils left that are too short to hold and use. It is a pity to throw it away. This design makes a pencil can be connected through it's head and tail by Chinese traditional Dovetail structure which is easy to make and stable in connection. instead of discarding short pencils, you can connect the head of the new pencil to the tail of the old pencil to obtain a complete new pencil .in this way, it can avoid being wasted and be used repeatedly and endlessly like the continuation of life.
