If you are a carpenter, or in any kind of building/handyman business, you know how helpful carpenter pencils can be. These pencils are designed to meet the unique needs of a carpenter by having a heavy, square body instead of a round body. This ensures that when a busy carpenter is making a mark for a woodcut, or where to hang a cabinet, the pencil stays put and does not roll away.
While you may be familiar with carpenter pencils, you may not be familiar with their helpful accessories. The first carpenter pencil accessory is a carpenter pencil sharpener. Because of the unique shape and more robust tip, traditional pencil sharpeners will not get the job done. Carpenter pencil sharpeners are made to fit the square shape, have stronger blades, and sometimes even include an emery board for fine tip filing.
The second accessory for these power-packed pencils is a carpenter pencil holder. It seems a little unnecessary to purchase a holder for a pencil, but trust us– if you have even been in the middle of a job and need to make a quick mark on the wall while holding up something heavy, you would wish you had purchased a holder for your carpenter pencils. These holders make the pencils easily accessible with one hand. Some examples of pencil holders are options that come as a key chain and some that connect to a ball cap.
