A hilarious pencil sharpener

Sometimes it can be enlightening to look around your cellar. Today, I uncovered such a funky device that I immediately had to think about sharing it with you. See for yourself:


This machine actually is a pencil sharpener and it works very well, beleive it or not. Altough I cannot recall how this machine came into my possession(it reads FaberCastell on its back side, which uis a german pencil manufacturer), it definitely is a new solution.
What do you think? Should I stop posting such stuff? Or did you find it funny?

Hmmm.
How many electric ones has it outlived I wonder? ;)

You're bordering on industrial archeology there, but it's obviously a well made device.
Good engineering is a testament to itself.

Hilarious? Those were standard issue in every classroom I had growing up.

We also had one at home with a suction cup base that you could mount on any surface...

Gotta agree with Darren. It just looks like a fond old memory to me...

I have to agree with them. I used manual pencil sharpeners in my earlier school years.

Hi,
we in austria had manual ones too. But they were extremely small and one held them in a hand and turned the pencil around.
However, nowadays, I dont to pencils anymore. I either to Parker Pens(quality is inctredible, one cannot kill a parker) or pressure pencils where you press on the back to sharpen...
Bst regards

I hate to say it, but you must be 10 years old or something, Its a bloody pencil sharpner, and a cheap one at that, only has one set of blades.

Cant be more than 15 years old.
