In this month’s issue of Wired magazine, there is a brief little article about the Alvin Brass Bullet pencil sharpener ($6.17 from our local art supply store, Creative Coldsnow). This dandy little brass, knurled sharpener features the all-important KUM blade. Simple, classic and 100% effective. Glad to see even the tech geeks see the value in a classic manual tool.

I *wondered* when this was going to show up! Nick Stockton interviewed me and Johnny about this months and months ago. No quotes in the story, so I’m guessing he just wanted some background info. What a great layout!
I want that photo, with that green background, as a poster for my CEILING! 🙂
Should I ask, why the ceiling?
I want to wake up looking at it. 🙂
Might be a good mantra for the day: STAY SHARP!
The Bullet sharpener is made by M+R Möbius + Ruppert. It has a special designed blade. The spare blades of KUM don’t work with this sharpener.
M+R has it’s individual high Quality blades!
