Press Pencil Sharpener

Pencil needs to be sharpen every once in awhile. Such task required two hands or electrical tool. Electrical sharpeners are too sophisticated for general user, and led to unnecessary energy consumption. Manual sharpeners are too big to carry or two small to be operated, especially for children or elderly that have difficulty in holding thin pencils.

"Press pencil sharpener" is design to be light, stable, easy-using and zero energy consumption. With simple mechanism, Press pencil sharpener allows everyone to simply keep the edge.
