Seeking a shortcut for his railroad to carry lumber, among other resources, across the Kinzua Creek Valley, General Thomas Kane worked to draw up the plans for the Kinzua Viaduct.  These graphite twig pencils are great if you want to design a bridge of your own.  Handmade from kiln-dried Winesap apple tree twigs and other sustainable resources and engraved by Elkwood Arts with "Kinzua Bridge State Park," these twig pencils are sure to inspire innovation.

Meet the Maker

Handcrafted in the USA since 1990, twig pencils are pruned branches from Winesap apple trees and other sustainable sources. No trees were cut down to make these pencils.

Engraving is completed by Elkwood Arts, which is a licensed vocational facility providing sheltered employment and training to disabled adults. They are a program of Dickinson Center, Inc. and their mission is to search for ways to meet the needs of adults with intellectual disabilities who are unable to obtain employment and show an interest in woodworking. The result is quality and handmade products made from Pennsylvania hardwoods.
