Twenty Four / Pencil Sharpener

Twenty Four
Twenty Four

The traditional sharpener can only produce one shape from nib, because of its fixed-sized pencil inlet and fixed-angled blade. The fixed shape of nib makes it not satisfying for different drawing requirement. The sharpener can not handle the pencil in large size as well. There are two layers of structure in the “Twenty-four”. The 6 holes on the outer layer are used for pencils of different sizes, and the 4 holes on the inner layer are used to produce nibs in different angles. 24 nibs in different shapes are allowed, when the outer layer is combined with the inner layer fully. It can satisfy various demands, and bring more pleasure as well.
