Check out this gruesome pencil sharpener designed by artist Matthew James Taylor. This guy knows his pencils. This design is revealed in a post on his site where he describes the art (first we heard of it being an art-form) of pencil sharpening.
Though, this “Living Dead Dolls” Sadie Pencil Sharpener seems to be his favorite tool of the trade (we happen to prefer the Wooden iPod Speaker Sharpener). Does it do a great sharpening job or does it just look cool as hell? Either way, the depth this guy goes on pencil sharpening is almost too nerdy to believe. And we love every second of it. — Andrew Dobrow
