Shorty Mechanical Pencil
We can’t quite put our finger on it. OK, technically we can. We’ve been using this chubby little mechanical pencil for weeks, and we’re feeling suspiciously joyful. Inspired even. The Wörther Shorty Pencil definitely has that special something. There hasn’t been this much hubbub and office thievery since supply chain mistakenly ordered those fruity-smelling markers.
For starters, the Shorty is short. Stubby even. And mysteriously, the Shorty can write on just about everything. The 3 mm graphite lead (7B for all you lead heads) is soft and buttery. It can write on wood, metal, paper and plastic. Bathroom stalls? Shame on you, we haven’t tried. This mechanical pencil even keeps a sharp point as you write. Witchery!
You may want to keep your Shorty under wraps—in your pocket, sock cuff or tucked away in a case (which it actually comes with). Shorties have been known to leap from desk to desk, even cross department lines. Whatever. We’ll just keep buying more.
