These adorable animal shaped pencil sharpeners are a reproduction of a model manufactured in the 1960s for export. When you sharpen a pencil, it rotates smoothly and a shaving comes out as a long, continuous piece like an apple peel.
These sharpeners pack all the elements that define the best Japanese manufacturing practices: attention to detail, quality materials, superior design and functionality. Experience the joy of sharpening pencils with these little animals.

Who Makes It
Founded in 1933, Nakajima Jukyudo of Osaka is the last remaining maker in Japan specializing in handheld pencil sharpeners. All the parts (blades, screws and plastic bodies) are made in-house and each blade is engraved with two words: Japan and NJK.
