DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
These colorful Ippo interlocking wooden pencil caps from Tombow keep your pencil case organized! Slide the caps over a few of your wooden pencils, then hook the tab of one cap into the slot of another cap. Viola! Now you have a block of pencils neatly bundled together.

Another convenience is that these pencil caps help prevent pencils from rolling away. The caps can also act as extenders for short pencils, making the pencils easier to hold.

This set includes four pencil caps that fit most standard wooden pencils.

These work as intended, but I do have a two gripes:

1) The pencil doesn't go down as far as I had hoped so there is quite a lot of dead space above the tip of the pencil. This seems to be true for all the pencils I've tried. This dead space makes the pencil quite a bit longer than anticipated and makes freshly sharpened new pencils ridiculously long.

2) I wish four could be connected together. They can be (they're basically restricted construction tetrominos), but not in a line. They can be formed into square, T, J/L, and S/Z formations. It's a piddly little gripe, but if you've a flat pencil case, the line formation would be ideal.

Beyond those two things, they are remarkably sturdy and colorful. I do enjoy that they can connect together to keep things organized/together. They stay on the pencil without fail and they grip pretty firmly -- so much so I was worried about damage to the finish of the pencil, but no such thing happened. All-in-all, I'm pretty pleased with these.

I got these on a whim but will have to get more. They keep the inside of my pen case clean and protect soft pencil tips from breaking off. I love that they clip together too, though I don't really need that. Might come in handy some day though.

These are sturdy and colorful. Unfortunately, they do not stay on pencils that are not round (the classic hex-shape of U.S. pencils). But they work great with the few round-barrel pencils I have from Japan!

These are very useful in keeping my pencil tips from breaking, and I really enjoy the caps' interlocking capabilities.

One thing I did notice was that these caps work much better with Japanese-made wooden pencils (Uni, Tombow) than with other various pencils I have (Staedtler, etc.); these other "various" pencils can still be put into these caps, but they are not very snug, so they may have the possibility of falling out of the cap if you move around a lot.
