For all our tablets, styluses, and computers, we still write out a lot by hand and enjoy doing so. The folks behind the Six Mile Pencil do as well, and they want to share that passion with others. This set of pencils shows you just how many miles of graphite you've used through all your doodles, scribbles, and notes. Currently on Kickstarter, packs being offered contain four pencils, each with six miles of graphite. Set some mile markers and let them inspire you to ditch the keyboard and touchscreen for a little while and do things the old fashioned way.
