FiftyThree’s Paper app won best iPad App of the year in 2012, and now the NY-based company is launching a Bluetooth stylus called “Pencil” that makes it even easier to create art with your tablet. Pencil is available now through FiftyThree’s website for $59.99.

The stylus is designed to resemble a carpenter’s pencil and it looks beautiful, with an exterior made from real walnut wood and the company’s logo engraved near the top. You can also opt for a metal version if you want to save $10.

To start using Pencil with Paper, you can sync the stylus by holding it over a digital button on the corner of the screen inside the Paper app. From there, just draw with it like you would with your finger, or flip it around to erase using a separate sensor in the top. Pencil is designed to work with the iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad mini, and iPad mini with Retina display. Head to the link in the source if you want to pick one up.
