5.0 out of 5 stars An amusing and surprisingly practical object, 10 Jan 2012
This review is from: Sharpener Desk Tidy (by Suck UK) (Office Product)
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.
