    grind it on a rock, concrete, you can chew on the end of it, knaw it, use your finger nails, use dykes and cut it... use your toe nails, sand paper, grinder, scissors, you can burn the wood part as the graphite will not burn like the wood will, file it, scrape it with glass,

    I was going to suggest scissors or go outside and rub it on the sidewalk.

    A rock can do the trick.

    Kitchen knife. Box cutter. Rough concrete or cinder block. Where there is a will there is always a way!

      "without a knife" precludes a kitchen knife or box cutter.
