The Germans are mad for pencil cases! When I lived in Bavaria, I saw pencil cases in every department store, stationery store, and art supply shop. Of course, I had to have a red one. I also bought a larger plain one. They're both made from pigskin, the commodity resulting from all that sausage-eating. Schmeckt gut!
My favorite sharpener is also German-made. It is small, simple, easy to use, and sharp. I don't even bother to use anything else because this is perfect. I did see a red Bakelite one in the shape of a Scotty dog that was very tempting, though.
My erasers are mostly shabby. The worn down white ones are Sanford Magic-Rubs, the grey triangle is by Prismacolor, and the large-size cap eraser is Helix from England. The new triangle is made by the General Pencil Company, once known as the American Pencil Company. I have hopes for it.
I also have a new Pentel Clic Eraser. Why couldn't these have been around earlier, so they could have had a beautiful celluloid case and a silver-plated clip?
Recently, I purchased a little pin-back retractable-chain pencil holder that I can use with a ring-top pencil. It's just the thing when you have more than one pencil with a ring-top, and you want to show them off.
