Ever Onward

Artisanal pencil pointing craftsman, David Rees, demonstrates the finer points of the age-old art of manual No 2 pencil sharpening in this short video. This step-by-step guide offers the novice pointer shrewd insight into the fading skill of manual graphite-encased-in-wood point-crafting. Of Rees’ book How to Sharpen Pencils: A Practical & Theoretical Treatise on the Artisanal Craft of Pencil Sharpening for Writers, Artists, Contractors, Flange Turners, Anglesmiths, & Civil Servants, Mark O’Connell of The New Yorker, reviewed the work as:


”HOW TO SHARPEN PENCILS is "the standard to which all future pencil-sharpening textbooks must now aspire."”

Ever Onward!
