Yurim Kang / Pencil Shavings Pocket

Yurim Kang
Yurim Kang

People normally use pencil sharpeners to sharpen pencils, but when there is no pencil sharpeners,
people would just sharpen them with small knives. And when people use knives to sharpen pencils, they sharpen them on a paper, table, or simply over the trash can, because sharpening pencils with knives make pencil shavings. And people would have to clean this mess after pencil sharpening, which is quite annoying to do, and this is why I designed this product.

This product’s name, Pencil Shavings’ Pocket, is from the name for the crumbs made after sharpening pencils and a pocket to put those crumbs in.
