An art tool that has been serving me so long it has rusted by time and it’s still not for neglect. This sharpener still works like a champ and I have never had any need to replace it. I did a set of photographs of the various tools in my studio one day and realized how loved this one was. I never found a pencil thick or thin that it couldn’t sharpen.
It was fitting to immortalize this tool that I have used for so many years and I couldn’t resist a bit of irony by incorporating it into a digitally produced image. No pencils were harmed in the production of this artwork. The straight photos are OK but this made me smile.
