Maker Eversharp

Maker Details The company was started by Charles Rood Keeran in 1913.[1] He applied for a patent on the pencil on October 10, 1913 and was granted US patent 1,130,741 on March 9, 1915. The first production Eversharp pencils were made in New Jersey by Heath Corporation. In mid-November 1915 Wahl took control of Eversharp. By 1921 over 12 million Eversharp pencils had been sold. n 1957 the Parker Pen Company acquired Eversharp. The Eversharp name was used for a time, but within a few years the production of Eversharp pens and pencils had come to an end. In 2013, Syd Saperstein and Emmanuel Caltagirone re-released the brand.
