Tsunago Neverending Pencil Sharpener

By Nakajima Jukyudo 

Osaka-based Nakajima Jukyudo designs and sells pencil sharpeners, nothing else. And for the longest time they’ve been racking their brains with what to do with those whittled-down pencil stubs that so often get discarded. Here’s what they came up with.

The Tsunago Neverending Pencil Sharpener (¥2,000Prices are approximate only and subject to change.

) brings new life to those otherwise useless stubs. Comprising three different tools, there’s a regular pencil sharpener (regular by Nakajima standards anyway i.e. extremely sharp and super smooth) but the real magic happens with slots #2 and #3. Slot #2 bores a cavity and slot #3 carves a miniature protrusion. Combining the two with a touch of wood glue creates a secure joint and a brand new neverending Franken-pencil.

This is a pre-order item to be dispatched from mid-2015.
