The World’s Best Mathematicians Are Hoarding This Japanese Chalk


In this delightful short, we see why the world’s best mathematicians are hoarding sticks of this ultra-premium Japanese chalk. Touted as the ‘Rolls Royce of chalk’, Hagoromo supposedly writes and erases better than anything else in the world. And since the company closed down, professors and math experts share stories about how they hoard, protect, and even ‘deal’ this chalk to needy customers.

We love feel good stories like this, keep it up, Great Big Story.
