Tin of 12 smart black pencils embossed in a handy pencil and pen tin keepsake box. In the sub zero temperatures of the Antarctic, pens and especially ink were not an option for many South Polar explorers, although surprisingly Sir Ernest Shackleton seems to manage to on several occasions. Most people used pencils to record data and information and even those were problematic with the thick mittens they were forced to wear.
This tin come with 12 pencils embossed with three quotes by Sir Ernest Shackleton. The tin, also decorated with a quote by the great and inspirational leader will keep your pens and pencils safe for years, and will encourage you each time you reach for one.
