These extra-sharp pencils make wonderful gifts.
Recipients will be reacquainted with the pleasures of hand-shaped pencils.
Craftsman David Rees, upstate New York, practices the age-old art of manual pencil sharpening.
The sharpened pencils from David’s artisanal service are shipped with a Certificate of Sharpening and the shavings from the sharpening in a small plastic envelope.
People usually mail in their pencils for sharpening. However David now offers a new service — he provides the pencils.
