Flower Pencils That Create Beautiful Petals

Casually sharpen your Flower Pencil and watch their reaction as the shavings drop from the pencil in the shape of flower petals! The brightly colored pencils, designed by Toshihiro Otomo in Japan, come in different shapes that create beautiful little petals when sharpened.

The eco-friendly pencils are made mostly from recycled paper and are easy to sharpen. A set of five pencils includes a pencil sharpener. KOBO is selling the Flower Pencils this holiday season at both its Capitol Hill and International District-Japantown stores.
