PRODUCT STORY
Let's just get to the point. You want to keep your desk looking sharp, but those cups, cans and containers may as well be lead balloons. Finally, there's a desktop organizer that draws on your sharp wit while keeping your pencils, pens and scissors in line.

DISCLAIMER: This supersized tool will not actually sharpen giant pencils. Giants need not apply.

Made in China.
MATERIALS
Rubber, Wood
Made from wood from a sustainable source. Working with our suppliers we endeavor to use wood from plants that are harvested responsibly, from well managed forests.

While this over-sized sharpener won't actually sharpen your pencils, it does make a point when it comes to fashionable desk accessories. Will the Sharp Pencil Holder be the next big product at UncommonGoods?

Made in China? No pencil sharpener and not very attractive.

Very cool looking, especially siting on the desk of a minimalist. However, I think the price is a bit high.

If it were made in the USA you might be able to fetch $25. For Made in China, $10 max.

Sorry luvs...Is this really just a pen/pencil holder? I see that it does no sharpening...so just a container? Hmm..Thanks but no. A little odd looking and not really more functional than a desk drawer or a old cuppa.

Pros: sustainable wood, cute ideaCons: too expensive for the size; made in China; should have a pencil sharpener built in

I love this ityem, but then, I ma alwayas a sucker for any over- or under- size take offs. I don't think you have to be a teacher to appreciate this wonderful interpretation.

I work with rubberwood and it is susceptible to splitting or cracking in warm and dry environments. we reject a lot of material at my factory for this problem

It is super cute, a great idea for any writer or teachers, but I agree with all the other comments--Made In Chine makes this gift undesirable.

I can't tell if it's a pencil sharpener too. If it is then it would be a thumbs up.

I think this is cute. BUT the price is way to high for what it actually is. Why would I pay $45 to hold something that costs less than a dollar
