These stick or twig pencils are made from real tree twigs that have had pencil lead inserted in one end. The wood used for these twig pencils is hard and sturdy and these have the regular silver grey colored lead tips like normal pencils. These are real twigs so the look of the bark varies between pencils and some may have some curve or bend and some are wider than others. The lead goes back about 1 inch or more and the twigs themselves are approx 5 inches long. They can be whittled with a sharp knife or box cutter to sharpen them. These twig pencils are available in several package quantities with discounted prices for larger quantities. Photos are stock photos, you may not receive these exact twig pencils but ones very similar. These twig pencils give an authentic rustic look to any party, scavenger hunt, scout event, educational award, wedding favor, etc. Out of country buyers are responsible for any import taxes, duties or fees and also for knowing the import rules in your country in regards to issues like wood imports.
