Pencil Cap / Pencil sharpener

Pencil Cap
Pencil Cap

Why don't pencils have caps?
Everyone would have at least once broken the lead while using a pencil.
Also, one often has to sharpen pencils but might not have been able to
because there were no knives or pencil sharpeners around.
This product is designed to solve these inconveniences.
It works as a cap for protecting the pencil lead while also working as a sharpener.
