For most artists and designers, the pencil sharpener is an invaluable tool. But most sharpeners use a steel blade that gets blunt with constant use. This simple sharpener by designers Chengtao Yi and Bryan Wong seems like the perfect solution as it's made of a durable material and also expresses the beauty of analog. The blade and body of the sharpener are made from zirconia, fused into a single unibody block, so the blades don't need to be changed and offers a smooth sharpening experience.
For drawings and note taking, we always sharpen our pencils. We believe a pencil sharpener made with beautiful and durable material is functional hence leads to desirability. We love the beauty of simplicity, and the magic of analog. It’s honest and thoughtful. We want to reinterpret the analog pencil sharpener that we’re already familiar with, a product that we trust and use everyday.+
