can't it be are you writing with this new pencil?

This course, at least currently, makes a consistent distinction

this - touto, touhle, touhletou
that - tou, tamtou, tamhletou

Is there any reason why "Do you write with a new pencil" should be wrong?

We have specifically TOU novou tužkou. that new pencil or the new pencil, not just any new pencil

When I first heard this I assumed it was "Are you writing it with a new pencil?". ("tou" being "to") How would that differ please?

Píšeš to novou tužkou?
