Neither pencil has a built in sharpener, no additional features but replacement ‘leads’ easily available and in a variety of colours They may look a little but like regular pencils, but carpenter pencils have a little bit more of a weird shape and a range of uses that makes them highly sought after items in woodworking workshops. Their unique shape, being either rectangular or elliptical, is designed to prevent the pencil from rolling away while cutting or taking measurements. Their design also provides a more comfortable grip due to the increased surface area, even when hands are wet. Mechanical: These pencils have refillable lead which is a handy feature as you won’t have to deal with messy shavings. This type of pencil can prove more expensive as you’ll have to invest in extra lead tips every so often.
