Sharpened lead, sharpened spirit
In Japannese calligraphy, ink is made by grinding an inkstone before writing. A rather meditative activity that you can now also experience when sharpening your pencil. The Japanese word Shin means 'Pencil lead', but also 'Pure', 'Spirit', 'Truth' and 'New'. Sharpening a pencil anew will thus sharpen the spirit. Purely and truly.
