The World’s Largest Pencil

5 06 2007

Yep. The Faber Castell Company, and it’s manufacturing facility in Malaysia is home to the World’s Largest Pencil. Standing at only about 65 feet tall and housed in a glass enclosure, it’s a Castell 9000 made of Malaysian lumber, and proper graphite. Yes, you can actually write with it.

How did I find this place? I was driving along to the Acer service centre, which is about 300m from this building and I see this huge sign that says, “The Worlds Largest Pencil – 100M thataway”. Well, just one more piece of evidence that Malaysians have major insecurity issues. Must be pen… sorry “pencil” envy. šŸ™‚
