NEW SLIDING PENCIL SHARPE / PENCIL SHARPE

NEW SLIDING PENCIL SHARPE
NEW SLIDING PENCIL SHARPE

An ordinary electric pencil sharpener is usually heavy and takes a large volume. Therefore, we innovated a double bladed mechanism in a shape of cone to sharpen the pencil which would roll side to side when sharpening without driven by electricity. With the design, efficiency is enhanced through the lightened parts and leads in the center are less likely to break.
Also, that a sharpener can be put only on a desk is turned with the structure to mount the sides of a desk, which can be a hanger for some personal belongings as taken apart from the main body.
