The DUK1106 Eraser Pencil Merges Two Note-Taking Tools

For such a simple object, it's actually quite poetic to see the DUK1106 Eraser Pencil as a beautiful union of two opposites. When composing a letter or producing a sketch, the lead is for scrawling and the separate rubber is for expunging.

Yet this design by Deuk Young Lee brings the two together in a way that differs greatly from the conventional combination. The eraser is no longer just reserved for the opposite tip of the writing utensil, in this case it is found along the entire length of the tool.

Two materials make up the peculiar DUK1106 Eraser Pencil, which comprises a round graphite core and a cross-shaped white rubber casing. As a result of this arrangement, the user will find it to be quite a comfortable implement to use, in addition to a convenient one.
