We saw these portable, Japanese Mini Pencil-Sets and instantly fell in love with them. Here's three reasons you will too:
First of all they're really, really cute!
Second - and this is the important one - no matter how much we use computers, when on a job-site, or just riding a train, the number of times a colored pencil kit comes in handy isn't small. Jot notes, sketch, annotate a set of prints - having a little pencil set that is small enough for everyday carry is awesome.
The third reason is actually the third and fourth reasons - The sharpener and eraser. When, you need to sharpen a pencil, or an erase a mark, there's nothing more frustrating than not having the right tool! So this set includes both.
Mini Pencil Sets have twelve different colors, a sharpener and an eraser, all in a fitted case the size of a credit card. The pencils are 1 3/4" long x 5/32" in diameter. The pencils are small but of high quality and leave a dense line of color. The credit card sized case is about 1/4" thick when closed.
This is a great gift item for yourself or for friends.
Mini-Pencil Sets are Made in Japan.
Note: The swing away cover on the current batch of mini pencils isn't very clear and has the company name on it. But the cover is a little more solid and sturdier as a result.
