Between my electronic gadgets and pens, it’s pretty rare that I use a pencil. Sure, I’ll use colored ones to fill in the occasional cool coloring book, but for the most part, the old #2 kind gets little use around here. Now, here are some pencils I’d want on my desk just because they look so cool.
Designed by Duncan Shotton, these Rainbow Pencils have a construction that’s made up out of multi-colored layers of recycled paper. As you sharpen them, the shavings that remain have a rainbow pattern on them. Naturally, the shaved portion of the pencil is rainbow-colored too, though it still only draws in dark grey graphite.
You can grab a set of five Rainbow Pencils for £5 (~$6 USD) for a 3-pack, or £10 (~$12) for a 5-pack, which makes no sense to me at all. Seems like a better deal to buy two 3-packs.
