CW Pencil Enterprise

    Caroline Weaver has a passion for pencils. “They’re kind of my favorite object,” she explains in her darling little shop on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Unfortunately for Weaver and her fellow pencil lovers, the 21st century has other favorite objects - most of them with touchscreens, keypads and voice recognition software. The onslaught of technological tools didn’t stop her, though, and she opened the doors of CW Pencil Enterprise in March of 2015. The shop offers a charming array of pencils, sharpeners and erasers, all held to the highest standards of writing implements: sharpens easily, is fragrant, holds point well, a little soft but not too smudgy and, of course, the pencil must have a good story. Weaver travels far and wide to the sources themselves, and CW Pencils carries pencils from practically every country still producing them. In addition to the standard writing grade graphite pencils there are softer, harder and colored - but only “the really good ones.” Whether you’re a lifelong enthusiast or a pencil amateur, CW Pencil Enterprise has something for you.Show lessRead more
