Two. Measuring about 6 inches, this is a French National Railways pencil. It is embossed SNCF 00307605, and the paint over the embossing is wearing thin. The pencil is loaded with a 2mm 2B lead (soft and thick) for artists. The mechanism works by pushing the end of the pencil. This opens a claw at the other end so you can adjust the length, or refill. It is fiendishly simple. This is my preferred drawing pencil. I believe the fact that this was NOT a commercial object, but was used by conductors, accounts for how well-designed these were. Nowadays, styluses are used instead.
