Best Made DUX German Pencil Sharpener
Made from solid brass, this incredible pencil sharpener was originally developed by the German brand DUX in the early 1950s. The dial on the end — known as a knurl — allows the user to adjust the blades to one of three different levels. To use, simply turn the knurl with a satisfying click to the desired depth and sharpen away. The variability makes this the perfect tool for a number of disciplines, from the technical draftsman or architect who requires a very sharp point to the designer or artist who may want a more blunt tip for sketching. It also allows one to adjust the sharpener to the tool at hand — for example, fragile colored pencils, which are prone to over sharpening, can be kept at a dull point. Tucked inside a handsome leather case, it’s a fit tool for any creator.
