Pencil is handwriting equipment which people use to draw and write on paper. It is made with a piece of graphite mixed with clay that has a wood case around it. Colored pencils instead of greyish silver, have a colorful tip and are usually meant for drawing rather than writing. Pencil writings do not smudge or wash away if the paper gets wet, they could only be erased by an eraser. A Minimal cursor with a Pencil.
