A student’s guide to pencils

Pencils are pencils, but to say all pencils were created equal is a stretch of the imagination that one should not be so willing to make. What exactly is a pencil? Here we shall assume that a pencil is a utensil that utilizes graphite to write, so as to be able to easily erase any erroneous marks. Such a definition creates a massive pool of possible tools that may be dubbed “pencil.” What could possibly mark some pencils greater than other pencils?
