    It’s a beautiful and well-made pencil pot – thank you for showing! May I ask which pencil the Noris-like black dyed one on the right is?

    I’m happy you like it.
    It’s the Noris stylus, made from Wopex material, that I got from you. The one on the left is the Noris stylus made from wood.

    Sean, I’m happy you like the photo.
    I kind of cheated. It was just too dark in the room and the first photo was blurry, so I got the tripod out (I don’t do that often) and took the photo again – with a tripod.
