Going green gets easier with this vintage Boston Ever Hardy hand cranked manual pencil sharpener. Its compact size and predrilled base make it easy to tuck this little yesteryear tool in a conveniant little nook. The pencil sharpener features a removable shavings catcher and is trimmed in red, a popular vintage / retro color. The sharpener crank handle has a wooden knob for comfort, and when mounted adds to the stability for better traction while sharpening your pencil.

I just tried it, ... AND it works beautifully! It will also save some electricity dollars and add a tiny bit of much needed physical activity, which is sadly lacking in our modern tech environment.

It is only 4 inches tall, jand ust past 4 inches when measured front to back, from its handle knob up through the pencil opening. The mounting base is 2 inches in diameter, with an overall width of 2 1/4 inches when measured across its widest point.

These sharpeners intrigue kids. I was at an estate sale once, and was watching a boy BEG HIS MOTHER for one of these. I think it was a blend of actually having to turn the sharpener handle and that "to HIM", the sharpener was a really, really ancient machine and TOOL. :) And guys LOVE their tools.

There is some paint loss, but I feel that compared to its age and the amount of use that has probably been seen, is minor.

Even though, the money saved on an electric bill would wind up being minor, in today's economy, every penny counts. PLUS this little unit does ITS bit toward lessoning the carbon footprint.
