exploring the art and science of pencils since 2005
Is that the Faber Castell UFO sharpener? Saw one at Pearl, but couldn’t bring myself to pay $20 for a sharpener that does not have replaceable blades easily available locally.
Hi Alberto, no, it is more like the Faber-Castell UFO’s mothership:
It is much heavier, and with a flat base. I’m afraid I can’t find a manufacturer’s name, nor any sort of online link, though I know I’ve seen it for sale online.
I understand your concern about the lack of replaceable blades. I believe this is a general issue with pencil sharpeners.
Take me to your lead — er, sorry for the pun.
That’s some sharp wit!
You guys really have a point!
Please, how they use it??
I have a feeling there’s going to be some interesting twists coming up.
I’d also like some info about the pancake/flying saucer sharpener. How about it, Pencil Talk?
I’m not holding anything back here – this sharpener came in an unmarked plastic bag, and has no meaningful surface markings that I can detect. I’m not sure where it was purchased.
– It uses standard replacement blades, and the blade is accessible from underneath.
– It does show fingerprints rather easily, but is otherwise a very nice desk accessory. It has quite a bit of heft.
If anyone has a source, please share!
