I am a nail biter, terrible habit. When I was a kid, I would chew up everything like a nervous horse does with its stall. Pencils, including the metal ferrule, were not exempt.

I lost my taste for them at some point, but not due to the germophobes ("if you keep putting things in your mouth, you'll catch germs off them and get sick!!").

The lacquer is pretty hard and smooth on the blackwings - I'd keep them hidden, too.

This is all going to end with me making pencils - it's unavoidable.
