    I'm looking for wooden pencils with erasers that don't get hard. I bought some yellow Ticonderoga pencils, but I'm not happy with the erasers. I'm not too keen on spending palomino blackwing money for pencils I'm going to cut down and carry in my pocket.

    I'm wondering if the eraser could be softened/brought back to life with something? I'm guessing that they all become hard over time??

    Faber-Castell's pencils seem to have a white eraser which lasts a _very_ long time.

    Wonder if those erasers are of the silicone variety? Those don't harden up.

    L'chaim!

    Last week I found a 4 or 5 years old field notes pencils. The eraser had obviously got hard... I thought it has just hardened in surface so Isanded it a bit on a gritty wooden table and it was brought back to life.
    Tried the same on an old Calepino pencil, and got the same result :)

    Good point, it's probably just the outer layer that goes hard, well done for bringing them back to life.
