In October 2018, our chairman Henry Hulan had the opportunity to speak to Johnny and Andy at the Erasable Podcast about Musgrave Pencil Company.
The conversation spanned a variety of topics, and among them was using vintage slats for a modern pencil. This was where the idea for the Single Barrel Pencil went from something that had been just in Henry’s head into an idea out in the open.
Of course, it’s one thing to talk about because so many people love vintage pencils. But it’s another to bring it to life. Could we make a new pencil from vintage Tennessee Red Cedar slats?!
