The Oversized Pint-size

Here’s another one of the neat finds Joe Nemecek shared with me during our photo shoot in DC:


The top example is a typical Sheaffer golf pencil – typical, although black is a surprisingly difficult color to find in these. But the lower one is the interesting one: for the executive on the golf course, Sheaffer actually made an oversized golf pencil, complete with a 14k gold wide band on which a facsimile of the owner’s signature was reproduced.

The guy probably carried clubs that were a foot longer than everyone else’s, huh?
