    For $15 I bought 3 wraps for the Apple Pencil and I am pleasantly surprised at the result as I was prepared to be totally disappointed. It's not perfect by any means but I will be keeping the wrap on for the time being. Weak points are the seam and the small piece for the top of the cap (which I removed).

    Also, I could have taken more time on the install lol.

    Close up pics show way more flaws than the naked eye at normal distance. The seam is not even visiable as the pencil is laying next to me in with natural light coming through the windows.

    I bought the retro apple, matte black, and purple for my wife.

    I would give them a 7 out of 10.

    Here are some photos of the retro apple installed.

    Looks nice and I like the retro appeal. Just be aware though ,if you ordered direct through Slickwraps, they have been known to not stand behind their products in the past. I would just document pictures if you encounter any issues.

    I love my wooden slick wrap on Apple Pencil

    Had it for almost a year now, still holding up great

    Looks cool/unique af, and adds grip. I dont like the stock slippery feel to Apple Pencil

    Take a blow dryer and heat up the curves around the apple pencil cap. This will get the slickwrap to lay flat.

    That's too bad. Those bunched up corners probably have lint already on them. A blow dryer for me always allows me to flatten out the corners.

    Wow it's so retro. I can see Steven Jobs introducing that at a keynote circa 1986!
