    • That would be awesome! And I wonder what Staedtler is doing these days, even. All of the recent Staedtlers I have are factor sharpened differently than this. Instead of the grooves running parallel to the pencil barrel, the are concave and look a little…whittled. My pal thought I hand-sharpened one I gave him recently (which I took as a huge compliment, as if I could hand-sharpen that well!).

  1. @ Sean,

    Hah! Although I *thought* I heeded your warning, I was still caught by surprised with that music. :D

    I love that old, silent movie quality to that video. It looks like it was made well before the 50s. Which, I guess if it was in Germany in 1950, it had a US-Depression-era look and feel.

    I have some Staedtler pencils from around this time. It’s cool to see how it could have been made. Thanks for sharing!
