Anyone have insight into the new Jim Irwin
pencil fragment for sale? Help me do the math. 88 pieces for sale. Each piece is 1/8" long. Using my great math skills, I come up with 11 inches. How do you fit that into the pencil? Maybe Dennis can respond.

Each piece of lead in the pencil is 1 3/4" (inches) long. The pencil came with one piece of lead in the pencil and 9 pieces in a storage area under the eraser.
