Pear-wood lead sharpener. A refined object, thanks to its forceful form: the surprise is the lack of the classically inclined plane on which to attach the blade. The unit looks like a perfect wooden block with a single hole on one side into which to insert the lead. A special hollow makes room for the blade, and also collects the graphite powder, preventing it from scattering on the desktop.
