Carl A5RY3 Angel Pencil Sharpener

Retro-style manual pencil-sharpening device

The first word most people would think when they see the Carl A5RY3 Angel Pencil Sharpener for the first time is "vintage." The second is "retro" and the truth is, its maker was certainly looking back to different times, when a sharp pencil was the main tool for any school or office work, and when the mechanical pencil was a thing only architects would use. In four soft colors (cream, pink, light blue, and light green) and a classic design with two clamps to keep the pencil in place, a crank to actually sharpen it, and a tank to hold the shavings, this could be a prop from a movie set in the 1950s!

But make no mistake: the Carl A5RY3 Angel Pencil Sharpener is a product of the 21st century! Its body is made of iron and its blade of a specially processed steel that guarantees long-lasting sharpness and ease of re-sharpening. It has a switch that allows you to adjust the thickness of the pencil's point to either 0.5 mm or 0.9 mm, and the part that is clamping the pencil is made of resin, meaning it can hold any round, triangular, or square pencil steady while sharpening it. If you believe in the pencil's second coming, this is a sharpener you must have on your desk!
