Graphite in the shape of weapons


I’m intrigued by these graphite weapon pencil sculptures by AS Batle, made from compressed graphite. Does anybody know what possible type of “proprietary binder” he may be using and in what type of mold? The site says they last for eight years if you use them for drawing. Via BB.
