This may sound kind of ridiculous, but I think that the No. 2 pencil is one of the most well designed tools ever created. It does its job perfectly, includes an eraser in case mistakes are made, can be be sharpened in case the lead breaks, is highly portable, and is very inexpensive. In short, form and function converge into one very simple, timeless, and incredibly useful tool.
