The Hovel is an entirely reimagined pencil sharpener, a pencil plane that allows you to whittle your pencil perfectly to any desired point. Its unique mechanism also helps to not break the lead of your pencil, unlike the commonly used sharpener, which twists and snaps graphite. Due to its solid brass body, its weight is a joy, and it gains beauty and character with age. It comes with replacement blades.
Included in this combo is the Hovel wooden base since we believe these two products belong together for a number of reasons. It has a dual function, as a home for your Hovel sharpener when using it to beautifully sharpen your pencils and as a chamber for shavings as you sharpen. It is the perfect, safe place to store your extremely sharp Hovel sharpener so that the blade is not exposed. Machined from dark walnut, the wooden base is the perfect companion to your Hovel and looks great on any desk.
