While researching for a post about the different types of wood that are used to make pencils with I realized that there was not a directory or blog post that lists all the different pencil brands & their pencils.

There are thousands of pens in the world made by hundreds of different manufacturers and it got us to thinking as to what the average length of a pen is? There are no set standards that to be classed as a ballpoint pen you must be a certain amount of length in mm, cm or inches.
