Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Yes, that's right, it's a giant pencil sharpener. It won't sharpen your giant pencils...but it will keep all your pens, pencils and other stuff looking sharp on your desk!

Product Description

We will try our darndest to avoid jokes about sharpening your giant rod. Yes, that's right it's a giant pencil sharpener. But no it will not sharpen your giant pencils (of which we're sure you have aplenty). This is for organising all your miscellaneous pens, pencils and other stuff without looking out of place amongst your other stationery related desk accessories. Utilise it for the safe storage of all manner of modern day British office detritus: Paperclips. Extra-Strong Mints. Condoms. And miniature bottles of gin. And of course actually useful office objects including scissors, pencils, pens and so on. The Desk Tidy Pencil Sharpener is made from rubber wood (from the Para rubber tree) that is used to make latex. Instead of the trees being burnt down at the end of their latex making cycle, they are turned into giant pencil sharpener pen pot. Useful, eco friendly and good looking. So what are you waiting for? Bin that stained old paintbrush jar and p...p...p...pick up a pencil sharpener desk tidy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp and sassy! 14 Dec 2010
Colour Name:Natural
I really like this desk tidy! I bought one for my eldest son who is almost 50 and 'has everything' but not this. He was thrilled to bits with it! Said he will have to 'super glue it to the desk' because so many at work have jealously made fun of it - but that's just what one would expect. Apparently, they are all wanting to know where he bought it! But he lives in the States and I have not seen anything like this on US websites. Now my other son also has one, and another two friends overseas. They are all really delighted with the style and funky look, and the solid structure which does not tip over when you use it. Wish I could buy more things like this to send to my family and friends...they all say it reminds them of when they were young, and in school! (A long time ago! Good memories remain!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute and unique 13 Oct 2010
Colour Name:Natural
Great, high quality item. It really is an oversized pencil sharpener! Good quality wood, with great attention to detail (the large screw on the imitation blade, and the ridges carved in the sides where you hold the 'life size' model). The diameter of the pen pot hole is 3". Plenty of depth/room to house scissors, pens, pencils, ruler, felt tips. Prompt delivery and well packaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp statement 13 Jan 2010
Colour Name:Natural
Sharpener Desk Tidy
Beautiful juxtaposition of materials - bright shiny metal and natural wood. Always something very appealing about everyday object produced at `giant' scale. Well-crafted - fine (and practical) addition to our design consultancy's conference room table.

4.0 out of 5 stars presents.. 13 July 2011
Colour Name:Natural|Verified Purchase
I bought a couple of these as stand-by gifts for all those difficult-to-buy-for men in my life. I'm very pleased with the quality,there's a really 'solid' feel to them. I think my brothers etc will like them - they've got to be better than socks or aftershave anyway!

Colour Name:Natural
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this as a Christmas present. It was really nicely made and very tactile. It was slightly smaller than I expected but suitable for purpose. A useful, yet unusual gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius! 24 Oct 2010
Colour Name:Natural
Perfect. Well i mean its a pencil holder so you can't really go wrong with it, it's not just going to stop working so it definately does what itt says of the tin - or rather the pretty cool packaging it comes in. I think its awesome, its very well made, very realistic and looks damn good on my table. It's genius.

4.0 out of 5 stars This should be on your desk 28 Nov 2012
By stemll
Colour Name:Double|Verified Purchase
Solid block of wood gives this a really weighty, quality feel. No way is this ever going to break. Much more attractive than the normal plastic alternatives, this belongs on all desks.

Only downside for me is that the smaller of the two spaces is a little smaller than I expected. Really is just for paperclips and so on, can't even get a staple remover in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amusing and surprisingly practical object 10 Jan 2012
By Stephen Citynskyj TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Natural
This is the best pen holder I have ever had. It is big enough to take lots of pens and pencils. It is made from a solid block of wood. This makes it really heavy, so it won't topple over even when you pull out a pen in a hurry. The metal sharper blade is perfectly safe (not sharp at all) and is made from a nice thick bit of metal (as is the screw head). It does get a bit smeared with handling, as you'd expect, but it wipes clean with a tissue so no problem there. The wood has been varnished (or maybe oil-treated) which gives it a subtle shine, and also makes it wipe-clean.

Its design is so distinctive that it is often picked up and remarked upon by visitors to my office. As a writer and artist myself, it fits perfectly into my world. The one I received is of slightly lighter wood than the one in the product photograph, but is still a nice warm shade.

So what we have is a surprisingly practical desk tidy. It looks fun, is made of very nice materials (it's not a nasty plastic thing), there is nothing to snap off or break, and it is so solid it will surely never need replacing.

Great looking, smaller than I expected. However I feel it is very expensive for what it is, and then paying for delivery!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's good
It's good and serves it's purpose. The right hand holder could be a bit deeper, but otherwise it's in constant use.
