Bakelite Double Pencil Sharpener
This German-made double pencil sharpener is molded from duroplast--most commonly recognized by the name Bakelite--a composite plastic material beloved by collectors. Unlike thermoplastics, Bakelite contains naturals fibers such as cotton or wool for appearance and texture. The result is a plastic material with depth and soul that ages beautifully. The sharpening mechanism is made of magnesium alloy with a wide opening at the end--if a lead should break, it will fall out of the sharpener rather than stay jammed in it. The double design accomodates both standard and wide barrel pencils.
