Pencil Sharpener?

Apparently I’m out of the loop but some people grind their pencils against cement flooring to sharpen it so this handy dandy device called the Re-knife makes it a bit easier with a portable stone. One side is rough, the other smooth. Who knew? Would any of you use this?

    I use 3 to 4 pencils to draw (I’m old school) a week and a sandpaper board. My sharpener is pretty good and instant, so no I wouldn’t use it. And I cannot see students being able to use it for it could be considered a weapon at school.

      weapon???? where in crazy USA we don’t kill people in our schools dude!

        Try California…several cases of children (high school age) being expelled with zero tolerance. But hey, you are free to try it! All the designer has to do is ask LAUD!

      oh and a sharp pencil isn’t a weapon at school?

      • mif991 says:

        No. but a knife is. Ask LAUD or your local School District if you don’t believe…

    Maybe changing the material of the blade, don`t using metal, it`ll can be used on schools.
    That`s a challenge for the designer.
    Good Luck

    I would use this, i use an electric sharpener now and the thing cuts pencils down to the size of a toothpick before it’s usable. So Yea, i want one.

    Pretty cool, i think. But instead of metal try porcelain or some sort of stone. Either that or just take out the blade portion and use it as a grinder.

    I could use it. Problem for me would come down to which side is smooth and which rough. Theoretically, I suppose it would cut through if both sides were rough so long as it had a blade at the edge. However, if it only performs well cutting smooth to the pencil, I’d have to insist on a left-handed knife. This thing is perfect for college students – so who cares if they wouldn’t be able to sport one in California high schools?
