    Default WW2 Japanese pencils

    Hello all, I’ve recently bought a few items from Japan. One of the lots was a group of Japanese military items, however in the parcel that arrived were these items?

    They were listed as soldiers chopsticks. Methinks not. The German on the pencil reads ‘war necessities’ and I believe the Japanese kanji below the imperial star reads ‘Army’.

    Has anyone seen or heard of these before please?

    Don't they have lead cores as pencils? No, chopsticks never.

    Yes sorry didn’t show pic. They are undoubtedly pencils with lead, just never used / sharpened.

    I’ve been searching for the makers logo. The widespread ‘M’, no joy yet.
