|The LIsto Company is still in business. According to its website, www.listo.com, the company was formed in 1921 to produce refillable grease pencils and china markers that would write on any surface. However, as seen here, the company also did a fine job producing traditional pencils.|
The company also patented this unique design. While most pencils advance the lead by either turning the tip or the cap, these advance the lead by turning the middle faceted section.
