Have the writing instrument(s) entries link to this page.

I have started listing Writing accessories at the bottom of the page - until there are enough to create a separate page (which might include other related items).

Can someone correct the film's name please?

Needs parallel translation to and from the German version. Jackiespeel 18:29, 26 July 2005 (UTC)

The reference is to Aguirre Wrath of God - since removed (using a stencil for name).

Article Need to be Expanded[edit]

It would be good if the ancient writing instrument section be expanded. There are other writing instruments from other cultures/civilizations not mention. Like Sanskrit, Arabic, Tibetan, ancient Greek etc.

I was really doubtful of one of the many claims make on this article that are unsourced. And I cannot find any evidence that Roman's abraded lead onto wood/papyrus to write with. See my History.SE thread. Wisnoskij (talk) 12:55, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

School use of slates[edit]

Typically schoolroom slates were *not* used with chalk, except for very young children. Chalk lines would have been far too crude/fat for older children to allow much work to be recorded. "Slate pencils" were used - these were made of soft slate or a slate composite which left a greyish, pencil-thickness line on the (harder) slate which was being written on. Usually such things wouldn't be worth mentioning, but this is about writing implements! (talk) 20:08, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
