This reminds me...

John in NM
Years ago I made some kind of joke about a carpenter's pencil... basically a Ticonderoga completely sharpened down to a 1" nub with a perfectly pristine eraser.

There is something about that image which seems to annoy normal pencil people - they are used to a half used pencil with a completely used up eraser. The idea of unused erasers drives them a little mad (see, my sister is one of those, that is why I made the joke - torture of a sibling.... I'm sure the Germans have a word for this, along the lines of schadenfreude :D )

So long speculation short.... this product could only appeal to a carpenter who desires to see conservation of erasers!
