In the late 1990’s, San Francisco artist Agelio Batle began to think about how a pencil is just an extension of a person’s hand when you draw, believing that it is the hand that draws not the pencil. With this thought, he experimented over the next year creating a pencil in the shape of a hand to commemorate this belief. Growing this creative and specialized line, Batle’s Graphite Objects are inventive and highly functional.

These functional graphite pencils allow you to bring an artistic touch to your everyday life. All items are made of graphite, the same material as normal pencil lead, but treated with a polymer that helps prevent the staining of hands. All Batle pencils wear very slowly and will last an average of 7 to 9 years of everyday use! Basically, think of any object you wish you could write with, and he’s got it! From Alligators to quills to antlers to olive branches, these functional pencils make a great (and thematic!) gift for practically everyone.
