It looks like I do. At first it’s novel, then it’s almost useful, because the sheer novelty of it all sends my brain scrambling to find justifications for owning one.
The sharpener comes with a Flat Sketchingâ„¢ pencil.
The instructions do not in any way capture how fun This Objectâ„¢ is.
After a few side-to-side slides, the taper becomes obvious.
Even the shavings look different.
So, after several side-to-side semi-wiggles, this is what the pencil looked like:
More vigorous side-to-side action finally revealed the graphite.
Then it was time to shave off the sides.
And finally, it was done.
The packaging says “use for drawing and sketching, broad strokes and coverage, and calligraphy practice.” Guess which one I chose.
My Amusementâ„¢ knows no bounds.
I enjoyed this sharpener very much, including its manufacturer’s extreme dedication to the â„¢ symbol.
