Short stubby pencils produced in the 1930's into the 1940's were and are often referred to as golf pencils. Sheaffer marketed their version as a 'Golf' pencil. The company also marketed the same pencil line as a 'Handbag' pencil. Parker named their pencils 'Vest Pocket' pencils. The company also used the black and red 'Vest Pocket's' for their bridge, card game desk sets. A few companies such as Wahl-Eversharp and Conklin produced pen/pencil combo's that featured a removable pencil section that converted into a 'golf' pencil. Many of these stubby style pencils were often brand unmarked and produced in Germany. Pictured here from top to bottom are a no-name, Parker, A.T. Cross and Sheaffer.
