There are lots of people around who can make any one of the required parts. There are people who can assemble the components, but is there any one who can actually do it all ?

Before you answer, remember that to make a pencil, you first have to make the tools to cut and shape the wood. Next, you have to make the tools to mine and powder the graphite, which then has to be mixed with the right amount of clay and dried to make a lead. The lead then has to be given the correct shape to fit inside the wood casing. This is in turn has to be closed and glued permanently around the graphite lead, which requires collecting and mixing all the ingredients to make the glue....

You seem to have a pretty good handle on it. We can make you chief of pencils in the coming dark ages.

"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much-the wheel, New York, wars and so on-whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man-for precisely the same reasons."  - Douglas Adams

taurusowner: Not surprising. Humans love to anthropomorphize the fark out of animals.

Don't anthropomorphize animals. They hate that.
