The saying on these pencils are an unofficial ODLCO motto: "u never try u never know," lifted from an anonymous t-shirt spotted in Taiwan. The saying becomes ambiguous when split between two sides of the pencil, morphing into "u never know u never try," depending on how one flips the pencil. A good reminder to just get started.
This pencil is a flat carpenter pencil, for work that requires precision marking. The flat surface is easier to grip and prevents the pencil from rolling away. Rotate the pencil to draw thin or thick lines, and sharpen it with a utility knife. The motto has been stamped in red foil on one end of the pencil.
