Pollux Brass Concave Sharpener
This product is currently sold out.
As the rarest type of single-hole sharpener, the Pollux is made of solid brass and has a blade that carves the pencil to a concave point that's longer than usual. It's convenient and elegant--a win-win in our book. For those on the hunt for a coveted antique A.W Faber Janus sharpener for its similarly concave capabilities, this is a comparable alternative.
*Replacement blades for the Pollux are available here.
Made in Germany
Single-hole, can accommodate normal diameter pencils.
*Though this sharpener sharpens beautifully, it only works perfectly on high-quality pencils with well-centered cores. We do not recommend using this sharpener as your everyday go-to as some pencils can't withstand the curve. Should your Pollux start breaking your pencils, that is usually a sign that it's time for new blades.
