I have sold out of these every week since Thanksgiving. Welcome to the 14th drop of "Lumber Crayons" (11th of Orange). They are solid G10 with a stained tip and bottom to give them a realistic look and feel to a construction pencil. The edges are chamfered and hand sanded to ensure that the only end that is sharp is the buisness end. These ship in a no frills padded envelop with the tip protected via USPS. $30 each.
