Second, Sherlock learns that the pencil is also long and thin -- just like the baseball bat Jay brings in for Luis to fix.

Third, Sherlock learns that the pencil has a point on one end and an eraser on the other. Luis can't give Sherlock an example of that -- until he realizes that his pencil was nested behind his ear all along! Sherlock gets a closer look at the pencil, and thinks he has once again solved the case.
