Pencil Pot Of The Month – February 2016 2

SUCK UK sharpener desk tidy

Description: A pencil pot looking like a huge handheld sharpener.

Material: Wood (rubberwood) and metal (stainless steel)

Further information: I first mentioned this pencil pot in in a blog post from 2009. Well it took five years or so until I bought one myself: I got the dark version when Tesco sold them very cheap, probably to get rid of old stock – and then, another year or so later I got this one from to of my colleagues. They know I am into stationery, so  they bought me this sharpener for my birthday. How nice of them.

 


I took this photo with my mobile phone (didn’t bring my camera to the office) and have to say: the photo is lying. It looks as if the phone removed the lead point of the pencils on the right side… Click on the photo to enlarge or even better, right click and open in a new tab to see the problem.

Here’s a link to the desk tidy on the manufacturer’s page.

I’m already looking forward to see what Lexikaliker’s pencil pot of the month will be. You can find his previous pencil pot of the month here.

Pencil Pot Of The Month – December 2015 4

Jade pencil pot

Description: A pencil pot made from jade

Material: Jade

Further information: I got this and another jade pencil pot when I was in Shanghai a few years ago. Compared to other pencil pots it is unusually heavy and the walls and base of the pot are rather thick. I assume this one was supposed to be used for a brush (because of its tall, slim shape).
