Best Pencil Shaped Birthday Gift For Brother Did you know that…

Modern pencils owe it all to an ancient Roman writing instrument called a stylus.

Scribes used this thin metal rod to leave a light, but readable mark on papyrus (an early form of paper).

Other early styluses were made of lead, which is what we still call pencil cores even though they actually are made of non-toxic graphite.

Graphite came into widespread use following the discovery of a large graphite deposit in Borrowdale, England in 1564.

Appreciated for leaving a darker mark than lead, the mineral proved so soft and brittle that it required a holder.

Originally, graphite sticks were wrapped in string. Later, the graphite was inserted into hollowed-out wooden sticks. The wood-cased pencil was born! :-)
