Zirconia Sharpener by Bryan Wong and Chengtao Yi
Updated: Jan 27, 2020
For drawings and note taking, we always sharpen our pencils. Wong and Yi believe a pencil sharpener made with beautiful and durable material is functional hence leads to desirability. They love the beauty of simplicity, and the magic of analog. It’s honest and thoughtful. The designers wanted to reinterpret the analog pencil sharpener that they’re already familiar with, a product that we trust and use every day. The blade and body are made from zirconia and fused into a single unibody block. By utilizing zirconia's material property, the blade doesn't need to be changed and offers a smooth sharpening experience.
