There is little to no practical use for Bobby Duke’s latest endeavor, aside from proving to the world, and himself, that he could carve a smaller pencil on the end of a regular pencil, and then an even smaller pencil on the end of that one. It’s the pencil version of Inception but it’s much easier to follow.

If anything, this piece proves that Duke has far more patience than the rest of us, because as I recall from my grade school days, pencils are the most frail writing tool humanity’s ever created. Even just holding one wrong can cause the tip to snap off, so I’m flabbergasted that Duke was able to carve this piece and keep his sanity.
