In everyone’s childhood, one of the first objects they encounter is a pencil and sharpener. Standing over the trash bin and sharpening your tool, and make your marks on paper. This interaction can be related to everyone across different cultures and background. The pencil sharpener is a work of beauty — it’s a piece that expresses simplicity and the magic of analog. A pencil sharpener is honest, and as you sharpen your pencil, you see the graphite and wood shavings fly out each turn.By utilizing zirconia’s material property, the blade doesn’t need to be changed and sharpens smoothly.
