Ok, I admit it, the ‘original’ pictured here is not really the original. The real original is here.
Nevertheless, it’s still the inspiration for Deli’s pencil sharpener 0668.
The left one prefers Kodak Ektar, while the right one’s favourite food are Mars Lumographs.

Does the Deli have rubber coated grippers to prevent “bite marks” on the pencil? I really wish manufacturers that do provide rubber grippers on their sharpeners would advertise this as a selling point. My poor Palomino Blackwing 602 which I sacrificed at the altar of my Carl Angel-5 sharpener looks like it is ill with chicken pox.
nice! did you get the camera during this Shanghai trip?
Great stuff, Memm!
Thank you for your comments.
Kevin, the Deli does have rubber coated grippers. I know exactly what you mean. I saw the Carl Angel-5 in green for 55 RMB (less than £6, €7, $9) in a great shop in Shanghai – a shop I want to write about soon. The Carl Angel-5 looks so good and I like it even more because it has a metal body, but I had a bite mark sharpener in the past and just don’t want another one.
Claire, I got it from my father-in-law. He bought it in 1986 when the factory stopped making this specific model. This must be one of the last ones of this model and it is like new.
Sean, a great camera and a great sharpener.
