Pencil design

It is hard to use pencilend when whittled down too much, so that it has to be left unspent, which seems like a tiny, 

overlooked and universal problem that no one cares. But if 

everyone wastes a pencil-end, it will be a huge waste of 

nature forest resource by statistic together. 

"Without End" is a simple idea that to attach pencil with 

a new one when it becomes a mere stump, so the pencil-end can be continued until used up thoroughly without any waste.

The design of "Without End" captures a gear shape structure 

at the ends of each pencil, contributing to engage with  another 

end of pencil firmly. Meanwhile the simple gear form can be 

mass-produced as the general pencil manufacture.
