Do you use pencils? Do you have a plastic pencil sharpener? Pfft. Toss it in the recycling bin, because this one is much better. Made of solid brass, the Dux sharpener is built to last. The weight of it alone would keep it from getting lost/shuffled around with your other desk tools, but there’s no guarantee that it wouldn’t walk away with a coworker with sticky fingers, so watch out.
Designed by Dux, a company that opened its doors in 1908 as the first pencil sharpener manufacturer in Germany.
