This is one pronounciation I never had a problem with - anyhoo the "old graphite company" makes sense because as I understand it when they run out of this particular graphite mixture (I guess there are more than one!) that WILL be the end of the pick production. So I guess there was a finite amount of this particular 'strain' of graphite originally produced - and I assume it's currently out of production.
