They say pen is mightier than the sword and the same can be also said for the luxurious 24K Pencil. In this digital age of emails and Microsoft Word, hand-written notes, letters etc are a lost art which is unfortunate. However the discerning consumer will appreciate the fine craftsmanship of the 24K Gold Pencil and will be encouraged to pen(or rather pencil) their meandering thoughts on paper with style and elegance. The surface pencil has been carefully plated with a thin layer of 99% pure gold and each pencil is individually packed to resemble bars of gold. So buy a bar or two from Design Boom as gifts as each pencil costs around just only $20.
